THIS MEDIEVAL TREASURE is a processional — a book of music and prayers used for liturgical processions. Donated to the College shortly after its founding, the book was long thought to have been stolen in the 1950s. Recently, it was rediscovered in a Shain Library storage area and restored to its rightful place, as an object of research and reverence, in the Linda Lear Center for Special Collections and Archives. CC: Magazine’s Phoebe Hall interviewed medievalist Ben Panciera, the Ruth Rusch Sheppe ’40 Director of Special Collections, about the book’s provenance and the characteristics that make it both representative of its era and a unique resource for the College.
