BL Sloane MS 345 – a Dutch Scientific Manuscript

Not strictly monastic, but no doubt of interest to some of the delegates to this conference, is a manuscript recently digitised by the British Library. Sloane MS 345 is text containing a variety of medical recipes and treatments, with illustrations of the processes as well. It is available for free from the British Library Digitised Manuscripts.
