Kline Books Contest for Latin Manuscript Specialists
We recently came across a letter from Pope Clement XII (r. 1730-40) pasted inside a fifteenth century incunabulum.
Eric has agreed to put this letter up as a contest for all Latin manuscript specialists. $25 for anyone who can work their way through this bit of eighteenth century handwriting and transcribe the letter. If I am reading him correctly, he seems to refer to war with Islam.
