1414: John Neuton and the Re-Foundation of York Minster Library

About the Project

The year 2014 marked the 600th anniversary of the bequest of books by John Neuton which led to the re-foundation of a library at York Minster, now the largest cathedral library in England. During the anniversary year, York Minster, the University of York, and scholars from around the world came together to commemorate Neuton's historic gift both through the creation of this website and as part of the York Manuscripts Conference.
