Angel Abbey Presenter: Dr. Brian Morin, Library Director at Mt. Angel Abbey An out-of-the way hilltop abutting Mt. Angel, Oregon is home to one of the West’s best collections of medieval and early Renaissance books. The nearly 5000 items include both illuminated manuscripts and rare books, mostly devotional in nature, and rich with beautiful calligraphy, color and shining illumination. Mt. Angel Abbey was founded in 1882 by a group of Benedictine monks from the Abbey of Engelberg in Switzerland. Dr. Morin will share some of the manuscripts and rare books from the Abbey collection.
