Frammenti in situ nelle biblioteche cappuccine del Canton Ticino (CH)
Keywords:Ticino, Capuchin libraries, Orselina, in situ fragments, laudario
The project Ticinensia disiecta, launched in 2020 and hosted by Fragmentarium, inventories, catalogues and studies medieval manuscript fragments in the Latin alphabet preserved in libraries in the canton of Ticino (Switzerland), with a focus on in situ fragments. The first part of the project concentrates on the library collection of the Capuchin convent of Madonna del Sasso in Orselina, which is fully catalogued in the library system (SBT) of the canton of Ticino. The study and online publication of these fragments helps sketch the circulation, use and perhaps production of medieval manuscripts in this area, as well as examine the practices of their reuse in the binding of books produced between the fifteenth and eighteenth centuries. Among the first results obtained is the discovery of a fragment of a laudario, one of the the oldest witnesses to the Lombard vernacular preserved in Ticino.
