https://www.msn.com/en-us/travel/tr...ia-could-rewrite-european-history/ss-AA14s85KA team of researchers in Romania has discovered a treasure trove of forgotten medieval manuscripts that have the potential to redefine what we know about Eastern Europe’s early history.
Discovered in the small town of Mediaș in the Ropemakers’ tower of St. Margaret’s Church, the find included over 200 books and manuscripts with fragments of printed work that date back to the 9th century.
139 books dating between 1470 and 1600 were found in good condition and many manuscript fragments were found inside the books, some of which date from as early as the Carolingian era and may date back to the 9th century.
Professor Dincă noted that church records do show that St Margaret’s had a collection of over 7700 books in 1864. I wonder how many have been taken/lost.
