URGENT! Petition to Protect Birgittine Manuscripts at Altomünster

The Syon Abbey Society

The Birgittine library at Altomünster is at immanent risk. Only recently discovered by scholars, this women’s library contains an irreplaceable ensemble of books and other materials that can extend our knowledge of late-medieval women’s experiences.
