A Descriptive Catalogue of the Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts of the University of Notre Dame and Saint Mary's College

by David T. Gura

This innovative catalogue describes the 288 medieval and Renaissance manuscripts held by the University of Notre Dame (Hesburgh Library and Snite Museum of Art) and Saint Mary’s College.

"David T. Gura's fastidious and comprehensive treatment of the manuscripts he catalogues ranks among the very best scholarship I have ever encountered. Both the originality and exceptional detail of this catalogue convey its potential to be a model for similar cataloguing endeavors in the future. This is no mere 'catalogue,' in other words; on the contrary, it represents the future of manuscript taxonomy, a departure from anything I know of for any American collection of manuscripts." —Scott James Gwara, University of South Carolina

David T. Gura is Curator of Ancient and Medieval Manuscripts in the Hesburgh Library and concurrent associate professor in the Medieval Institute at the University of Notre Dame.
