This small parchment booklet was produced for the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome, which is commonly known as the Angelicum. The university traces its roots to 1222, when the Order of Preachers (Dominicans) founded a house of studies.
|Even the back has been decorated with the seal of the university, which features the eponymous St. Thomas Aquinas. It is difficult to capture on the screen the way the gold ink shines when it catches the light.|
