> lrf. How I wish I had been able to attend the lecture. I looked into the
exhibition on my own on Wednesday, the day of the outings, couldn't make the
National Museum soiree there. I was rather disappointed with what text was
on display: it looked extremely fragmentary. But people at the Congress
told me the real value of the find is in the book-making techniques
displayed, and that it lays to rest altogether the theory that, for
instance, the Stowe Missal might have originated from an English workshop.
