Part 2. Catalogue
The Catalogue contains brief descriptions of all the manuscripts on display in the exhibition. In addition to the conventional information, the descriptions state briefly the role each manuscript played in the process of Bessarion’s work on In Calumniatorem Platonis, record its location in Bessarion’s library (locus or topos) and, on the basis of Lotte Labowsky’s study, indicate whether it has been identified with an item in Inventory A, which accompanied the act of donation, and/or Inventory B, which documents the transferral of the books to Venice, both during Bessarion’s lifetime and after his death. The description of each manuscript found in Inventories A and/or B is also quoted.
