Description

Article consisting of the complete collection of the best 23 facsimiles selected among the 33 editions made up to the time of the Blessed of Liébana, the most important series of medieval manuscripts made during almost 400 years.

At present, 33 facsimile editions have taken place since the Edilán publishing house brought to light the first facsimile of a Beato de Liébana, that of the Cathedral of Gerona, until 2015 when the Scriptorium publishing house made the last facsimile, a true work of art and craftsmanship, an original copy in natural parchment of the Blessed of the Cathedral of El Burgo de Osma, and jewel of the crown of the collection.

22 are the Illuminated Blesseds plus a compilation of loose Blessed fragments that contain illuminations of so many other Blessed and lost Blesseds; 6 are the Blesseds that have been reproduced several times by different publishers throughout these 40 years.

With the composition that is detailed below there can only be 66 collections in the world like this one. We have selected the best editions from the repeated editions, but you can check for any changes in them and their final price.

The relationship, in order of date of publication, of the 22 Blessed of Liébana plus the fragments that make up this exceptional collection of codices is as follows (they are all on this same website separately):
