Medieval treasures at Denison University

Denison University, a small college in Granville, Ohio, houses a surprisingly large collection of rare books and documents. Its holdings include a book of Psalms from 1492 and a treatise on alchemy written by a Franciscan monk in 1350.

The library also has 50 pages from 50 different illuminated medieval manuscripts.

The university has focussed in recent years on preservation as well as showcasing their rare collection to the public.
