On Sunday 31 March, the Vercelli Book returns to citizenship after the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms exhibition in London. Art, Word, War . With his return, between history and legend, the crossed destinies of the Vercelli Book 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 emerge. On March 31st, a virtual tour will accompany visitors in this apparently distant world which, thanks to the Vercelli Book, is much closer than it seems. To talk to us, accompanied by Timoty Leonardi and Maurizio Audone, the professors of Georg-August-Universität Göttingen and University College of London: Winfried Rudolf, Richard North, Christine Voth and Thomas Hall (with simultaneous translation from English).
