In conjunction with Dunedin Public Library and Public Art Gallery, we will view some of the best medieval manuscripts held in the Library's surprisingly rich collection, and take a behind-the-scenes look at a renaissance Madonna and Child at the Art Gallery. A light lunch is included, followed by a presentation on renaissance alchemy at the court of Emperor Rudolf II. This presentation includes a performance of three of Michael Maier's alchemical fugues.
