Medieval Civilization and Culture
Treasures of the National and University Library of Slovenia

The collection of Medieval Latin manuscripts is undoubtedly among the library’s most valuable holdings. It comprises 85 codices, most of which were acquired by the National and University Library’s predecessor, the Lyceum Library from its establishment in 1774 to the end of the 18th century. The majority of manuscripts come from the Carniolian monasteries, which were suppressed during Joseph II’s administrative reforms, like the Stična, and the Kostanjevica Cistercian monasteries and the Carthusian monastery in Bistra.
