Older Manuscripts


Detail of the Ericsberg Manuscript, first half of the 15th century.

The oldest material is made up mainly of European medieval manuscripts, both Swedish and foreign. The National Library's collections contain about 1 100 manuscripts dating from before 1600, about 300 in Old Icelandic and Old Norwegian, and about 350 in Latin.

All together, there are about 10 000 volumes. In recent years, the Manuscripts Division has been concentrating on cataloging the library’s studbooks and manuscript travelogs. Cataloging of the Latin manuscripts is in progress. The National Library’s medieval manuscripts are being microfilmed in partnership with the Hill Monastic Manuscript Library.
