  • If you are familiar with early English literature, you know about the Vercelli Book. It is an anthology of Old English prose and verse that dates back to the late 10th century. The Capitulary Library ...  more »
  • In the Bishop's Palace is this small but very interesting Museum. The highlight is definitely the "Vercelli book" from which you normally see a copy, but sometimes it's also exposed the original (the Museum has available a list of dates). This book, while not having anything "artistic", has an enormous importance from the philological point of view as it represents an early example of text written in old English and its presence in Vercelli is in itself an interesting fact: it is not for nothing that was known as "the book that nobody could read". In addition to the book there are to see crucifixes, chalices, vestments and other treasures including a beautiful casket Limousin backgrounds. There is also the splendid coffered ceilings of the building.

  • The museo del Tesoro del Duomo is located inside the Archbishop's Palace in the city of Vercelli. Within it there are several works that are part of the heritage of Cathedral of Saint Eusebius. There are fabrics, crucifixes, paintings, sculptures, chalices, reliquaries and upstairs you can see the room inhabited by Pope John Paul II during his visit to the city. Perhaps one of the greatest works is the Vercelli Book, a parchment manuscript written in England, which contains much of old English poetry. Inside the Palace, on previous reservation, you can visit the rich Pinacoteca Archbishop.
