Michael Wood Introduction‘If I had to save one historical document from the whole of English history, it would not be Magna Carta - or even Domesday Book- but Textus Roffensis.’ Michael Wood, historian and broadcaster
Michael Wood’s exploration of the famous Textus Roffensis (‘Book of Rochester’) comes as the first instalment of Rochester Cathedral’s new initiative, Leafing through the Library. The cathedral’s manuscripts and early printed books will be shared and investigated online bi-monthly. Digital images from Rochester cathedral’s library will be accompanied by articles examining the content, context and significance of a wide variety of books including, amongst others, Henry VIII’s Great Bible, one of only thirty-five copies of the 1662 Sealed Book of Common Prayer, a 1744 navigation atlas and Isaac Newton’s observations.
