Enlarge/ Letters from a medieval illuminated letter.

The letters on the right are from the letters of a woman named Maria, who died in 1511, but who left her manuscript of the letters with her husband, who was an Anglican bishop.

Maria died in a mysterious accident in 1517, but her handwritten letters remain. 

In order to properly read the letters, it’s necessary to have access to the original manuscripts, and that means that many of them are housed at the University of Manchester’s Library of Medieval and Renaissance Literature.

The university is currently digitizing them.

“We are working closely with other libraries and libraries in the UK to digitize the manuscripts so that they can be accessed and read by everyone,” says Matthew L. Jones, the Library of Modern and Rare Literary Sources (LOMIS).

“The vast majority of these manuscripts are in the United Kingdom, but a number are in various parts of the world.” 

The manuscripts themselves are among the largest remaining medieval manuscripts in the world, and they are one of the most valuable historical documents of the Middle Ages.

The Library of Renaissance Letters, as it’s commonly known, was established in 2012.

It’s the largest library of its kind in the Western world, which is a big deal considering it was founded in the middle of the Renaissance, the last century of Europe’s history.

It has over a hundred volumes, including books, manuscripts, photographs, and other rare and valuable objects.

LOMIS has also digitized hundreds of manuscripts from the late 14th and 15th centuries.

The Library of the Modern Library is one of LOMis collections of manuscripts.

When you’re not reading the manuscripts, you’re reading the history of letters, as well as the letters themselves.

As with many things in history, there’s a lot of overlap between medieval and modern.

This illustration shows how a medieval letter would look.

In medieval times, the letter was written on a piece of paper, and each letter would contain an image of a person, animal, or place that would make it more easily legible.

Letters were usually signed by the writer, which meant that they would be addressed to the sender and the recipient.

While there’s no way to know exactly who wrote the letters or how many people they addressed, the letters were usually kept in a certain way.

To illustrate the size of the handwriting, LOMIs medieval illuminated manuscripts are roughly 1.5 inches (5 centimeters) wide and 8 inches (20 centimeters) tall.

One of the earliest letters, written in the 14th century, was titled, “To the Duchess of Parma, Your most beloved daughter, and her dear servant, the Countess of Tuscany.”

The second letter, written by the same author in the 15th century and addressed to a courtier in the Holy Land, is titled, “…and my lady, dear and beloved servant, I thank thee for your kind and gracious greeting.

You, who have always loved me, have brought me to you.

You are always with me, my dear, and you are always there.

Your loving care and affection are always on my mind.


As the years passed, letters grew longer and longer, with many handwritten manuscripts becoming more complex.

At one point, the number of written letters on medieval manuscripts reached nearly 300,000.

However, in the mid-17th century in Italy, there were fewer than a thousand letters left to keep track of.

The manuscripts were mostly kept in boxes, which were sealed and hidden, and there were few, if any, libraries in that time period.

Because of this, the manuscripts were often kept at the villa of the Duke of Burgundy.

During the reign of King Ferdinand II of Spain, it was decided that all the letters would be stored in a large library, and the library was known as the Villa of the Princesses of the Spanish Empire.

The letter was then sent to the Duchess and Duchess of Toscana.

These two letters are the first known examples of medieval letters written in a handwriting system called “scrawl.”

“This system of scrawl was invented in the 13th century by a Spanish monk named Bernardino de Pilar, and it became popular among medieval monks,” says LOMI’s Jones.

Scrawl is a type of lettering that involves a number of strokes, or strokes of the pen, that produce a series of distinct strokes of each letter.

It was created in the 11th century.

Although scrawl is not the same as a modern cursive, the modern cursives are generally much more cursive than the medieval ones, which are much more complex and complicated. 

A scrawl that looks like a modern letter would be the result of a scrawl, which involves a series, or group of strokes that produce multiple lines of different colors.

According to LOM,
