Published by St. Louis University Library. The journal accepts articles and notes on topics relating to medieval and Renaissance manuscript studies, including (but not limited to) paleography, codicology, illumination, library history, reading and literacy, and manuscript catalogues.
Published by Biblioteca apostolica vaticana. The title was chosen to indicate clearly the two types of material to be included: original studies, which take their origin from the work of cataloging manuscripts; and unpublished texts, or ones in need of new critical treatment in light of the systematic review occasioned by the work of cataloguing manuscripts. Most of the studies are devoted to the investigation and illustration of collections or groups of manuscripts in the Library; but also widely represented are disciplines such as palaeography; classical, medieval and modern philology; Byzantine literature and theology; Italian literature and dialectology; medieval and modern history; history of canon law; studies on humanism and on individual humanists, art, hagiography, biblical exegesis, liturgy, medieval theology and philosophy, and Church history.
