The Nuremberg Chronicle is a history of the world from the dawn of creation until it was written in 1493. The text is sketchy but the book is saved by the remarkable woodcuts - some 645 of them - which, for the first time integrated illustration and text. It is probably the most remarkable incunable of the 15th century.

In this lecture, The Revd Canon Dr Maureen Palmer will talk about the structure of the text, the nature of the woodcuts and also some of the scientific and medical characters which appear within it.
