The Codex Calixtinus stolen from Santiago Cathedral's Library

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Sorry to send this very discouraging new:

The Codex Calixtinus, one, if not, the most precious Medieval codex from the Spanish cultural heritage has been stolen from Santiago de Compostela Cathedral's Library. This is specially a very sad new for all hospital historians as its main content is kind of pilgrim's guide to Compostella produced in the 12th century.
