The Lost Library of Llanthony

Event Details

In the medieval period, the scholars of Llanthony Secunda were responsible for the creation of a very special library that is still considered one of the richest and best-documented medieval English book collections in the country. This remarkable library is no longer in Gloucester but is scattered across the world, and this new documentary film traces the stories the books tell, how they were created and how they survived almost certain destruction.

Premiere : 17:30 – 19:00 Friday 9th September, booking link to follow shortly.

Weekend activities: Come along to Llanthony Secunda Priory this Heritage Open Day weekend to find out more about how you can watch the film, and to explore how medieval manuscripts were created, no need to book.

Fully accessible.
