Buochmeisterinne - Manuscripts and Early Printings from the Dominican Cloister Adelshausen
Museum für Stadtgeschichte
The women in medieval cloisters were "buochmeisterinne" in many different ways. For them books played a central role, whether in education, religious teaching and liturgy or in the administration. But what manuscripts were there in Adelhausen and other Dominican cloisters? Who organised their acquisition and use? The exhibition presents pieces from the city, the Adelhausen Foundation and other loans.
