Marginalia Monday, with Manicules!

Annotations are not uncommon in our collections, but the reader of this copy of a 1541 tract by Martin Luther is less restrained than many.  The pamphlet has large, flowing annotations throughout and numerous pointing hands, or manicules.  (Our student assistants have dubbed these markings “finger guns.”)

A modern reader might assume that the ‘no’s suggest disagreement with the text, but they are likely manuscript abbreviations for “nota.”

Notice also the unfortunate, later trimming of the text block, obscuring some of the marginalia.

More fun facts about ancient Celtic marriage laws: There were no laws against interclass or interracial marriage, no laws against open homosexual relationships (although they weren’t considered ‘marriages’ since the definition of a marriage was ‘couple with child’), no requirement for women to take their husband’s names or give up their property, but comedians couldn’t get married
