The long-standing editor, Professor Dr. Stephan Füssel, will present the newly published Gutenberg Yearbook 2020 to the President of the International Gutenberg Society, Lord Mayor Michael Ebling, and will introduce some highlights from it. These will include exciting and topical contributions, such as the international teamwork in Strasbourg, Mainz and Italy, which is behind Johannes Gutenberg's development, and the first exhibition of a Gutenberg Bible in Moscow, which was lost after 1945. The Bible has a rich history of provenance, the traces of which also lead to Mainz and to a Leipzig collector.
The Gutenberg Yearbook has been published by the Gutenberg Society since 1926 and is the central scientific publication organ of international Gutenberg research. It is usually presented each year at the annual meeting of the International Gutenberg Society on the Saturday of the Johannisnacht in Mainz. However, due to the current situation, this had to be postponed until autumn, so we are pleased to be able to offer all interested parties an insight into the new Gutenberg Yearbook as a substitute for the cancelled festivities.
LIVESTREAM: You can follow the event live via our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Ggesellschaft/) as well as via our Instagram Profile (https://www.instagram.com/gutenberggesellschaft/). All interested parties will also have the opportunity to watch the presentation on video afterwards.
