Journée d’étude / Publication – The Library of the Dukes of Burgundy and the edition of medieval booklists of the southern Low Countries

Monday 24th October 2016
Royal Library of Belgium (Park Room) – Mont des Arts | Kunstberg – 1000 Brussels

In June 2016 came out the long-awaited volume V of Medieval Booklists of the Southern Low Countries (Corpus Catalogorum Belgii – CCB). The volume contains the critical edition of all surviving medieval inventories of the library of the Dukes of Burgundy.This was in the fteenth century one of the most prestigious princely col- lections in the world, consisting of hundreds of mostly illuminated manuscripts. The hitherto available editions of these inventories were for the most part incomplete or unreliable. In the present book the editors have provided editions of the inventories already known, based on all existing archival documents, and of a series of newly discovered ones.

With this volume the long-term project Corpus Catalogorum Belgii (CCB) coor- dinated by Prof. Dr. A. Derolez under the auspices of the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Sciences and the Arts comes to an end. It started 50 years ago with the publication of the rst volume of Medieval Booklists of the Southern Low Countries dedicated to the province of West Flanders and was the work of one author. Since then the series has become the work of a whole consortium of editors from different universities and other research institutes. On this special occasion a symposium is organized by the editors in collaboration with the Royal Library of Belgium and the Royal Flemish Academy dedicated to the library of the Dukes of Burgundy and the edition of medieval booklists of the Southern Low Countries.
