Hymnarium 
Over 800 years old, this large hymnarium (a hymnal or collection of hymns) was hand-painted on lambskin parchment. Juices of berries were used as ink. Manuscripts are among the most common items to survive from the Middle Ages and are also the best surviving specimens of medieval painting.
