Sunday, March 31, the Vercelli Book returns to citizenship after the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms Art, Word, War exhibition in London. With his return, between history and legend, the crossed destinies of the Vercelli Book emerge with the Codex Amiatinus, the Ruthwell Cross, the stories of Juliana and Elena, the insular writing and the figures that populate the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms.
On March 31st, a virtual tour will take visitors to this seemingly distant world but, thanks to the Vercelli Book, it is much closer than it seems. Talking to us, accompanied by Timoty Leonardi and Maurizio Audone, the professors of Georg-August-Universität Göttingen and the University College of London: Winfried Rudolf, Richard North, Christine Voth and Thomas Hall (with simultaneous translation from English).
To see the Vercelli Book for the first time after his return from England, two shifts are scheduled: at 2:30pm and 4:30pm.
An opportunity to rediscover the treasure of the Capitular Library of Vercelli, together with teachers and students who attend the VSMEP (Vercelli School of Medieval European Palaeography) every year.
