The Wittewierum Chronicle

The Library of Wittewierum is a thing of the past. For centuries now. It only existed as long as there was an abbey there. In 1561, that abbey was dissolved. Its last remains vanished in the 19th century. Some books from its library have survived, though. Even more than we thought.

On our weblog Gauronica, curator Special Collections Adrie van der Laan describes what we can learn about the Bloemhof abbey through the Wittewierum Chronicle, written in the thirteenth century by abbot Emo, and two newly found books.
