IntroductionThe school in Mainz has made scholars familiar with special, less known and remote collections like the fragments of the 9th century in the Martinus-Bibliothek and the world’s most important collection of utilitarian Christian literature in the Hymnbook Archive and Jewish Library. The school focused on book history and provenance research with practice on reading ownership entries, research on former owners and analysis of the results and trained the users in palaeography, prosopography and version comparison.
