Exhibition of Ancient Literature Is Opened in the National Museum
A little over 30 literary works will be exhibited in Ljubljana until 8 February 2018. The exhibition entitled “On Parchment and Paper. Manuscripts and Prints from the Maribor Collections” comprises the literary landmarks of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance, which are stored in the three institutions of Maribor—the Archbishop Archive, the Regional Archive and the University Library.
The exposition in the National Museum of Slovenia’s department located in the Metelkova Street features the works created from the middle of the XII century to the middle of the XVI century. They demonstrate the aesthetic and stylistic tendencies of art centres associated with Slovenian cities and lands. Exposed copies were created in the university environment of Paris, the papal chancellery in Rome, and the royal manuscript workshops in Prague.
