Stift Klosterneuburg. Bibliothek

This monastery of Augustinian Canons Regular, some eight miles northwest of Vienna, was founded shortly after 1100 by the Babenberger Margrave Leopold IV, popularly known as Saint Leopold, patron saint of Austria. For more than eight centuries it has remained a center of learning and culture, and the excellence of its medieval school and scriptorium is attested by its large and valuable manuscript collection. HMML microfilmed 1274 manuscripts dating from the 9th to the 18th c., but chiefly dated before 1600.
