Mont-St-Michel manuscripts : Michelin's recommendations
The municipal library houses a stock of outstanding ancient manuscripts from the 8C to the 15C. Originally kept in Mont-Saint-Michel Abbey, they rank among the most prestigious French collections of medieval manuscripts. Themed displays allow visitors to admire the finest items: texts from Antiquity (Aristotle, Cicero) and from the Middle Ages (Abélard, 12C chronicle by Robert de Torigni), manuscripts illuminated by monks at the height of the Romanesque period or by laymen during the Gothic period.
