Published since 28 Oct 2010
On the occasion of the 625th anniversary of the University Heidelberg (Germany) the Heidelberg University Library presents its most precious treasure and one of the most important literary resource of German literary history: the Codex Manesse. The exquisitely illuminated medieval manuscript was written at the beginning of the 14th century in Zurich presumably due to the initiative of Johann and Rüdiger Manesse. The manuscript unites the entire range of Middle High German poetry, the oldest texts date back as far as the mid 12th century. Many poems are uniquely documented here: The Codex Manesse is one of the key testimonies for the literature and culture of the Staufer dynasty.
