In the context of a project funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in cooperation with the Centre for the Study of the Book of the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, organizes the international conference "An experimental phase in the history of early printing: Fifteenth-century blockbooks“.

The conference will provide an opportunity to discuss the results achieved by the project so far with representatives of various academic disciplines. The first day will focus on questions with regard to the materiality of the blockbooks, while the second will be devoted to questions of content, function and reception relating to a selection of examples.

During the conference, the exhibition "From the ABC to the Apocalypse. Life, Faith and Death in Late Mediaeval Blockbooks“ will be opened which will be on show until 6 May 2012 in the treasure room of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek.
