Turning the Pages

Turning the Pages brings together great works of art such as the Sherborne Missal, Luttrell Psalter and Sforza Hours, in addition to the Lindisfarne Gospels. Other religious texts such as the Diamond Sutra (Buddhism), Sultan Baybars’ Qur’an (Islam), and the Golden Haggadah (Judaism) can also be examined in close detail. There are scientific works too: Leonardo da Vinci’s Notebook, Elizabeth Blackwell’s Herbal and Andreas Vesalius’ De Humani Corporis Fabrica, a rare sixteenth-century treatise on anatomy. Leaf through these priceless treatures and magnify the details. Useful background notes and audio files are provided.
