I am delighted to say that the Rookwood Book of Hours will now be returning to East Anglia and taking its home amongst the Rookwood family papers at Cambridge University Library after the University Library purchased the manuscript on Tuesday for £11,000. Thank you to everyone who has lent their support to this cause. This manuscript has the potential to advance our understanding of how post-Reformation Catholic families related to the medieval past, as well as being an intrinsic part of the Rookwood manuscripts. Congratulations and thanks to Cambridge University Library for being willing to preserve this piece of recusant heritage.
