Over the past year, we’ve been working on a project with Rochester Cathedral and CHICC Manchester to produce a film and accompanying DVD Project, for Rochester’s Hidden Treasures Exhibition.
The crypt which will house the exhibition is currently undergoing a huge restoration and is due to open later this year.
The Textus Roffensis is considered by some, to be as important as Shakespeares First Folio and the Domesday Book.
Contributors included Dr Chris Monk, broadcaster Michael Wood and Dr. Alixe Bovey.
The DVD included a film about the history of the book and the reasons for the digitisation of the manuscripts; readings and translations of the book itself and examples of the digitised images, produced by the team at CHICC. This was a wonderful project to work on, if you get a chance to view the completed exhibition and this remarkable book, please do!
