(From the Greek palin psestos = "scraped off") denotes a manuscript or a fragment in which an existing text (e.g. by a pagan author) was scraped off or washed off in order to write another text on the precious parchment (e.g. with the text of a Christian author).
We have been running a specialist store for facsimiles for over 10 years in Regensburg's Old Town, just opposite the "Schottenportal" of the Romanesque Scots Monastery of St. Jacob at Jakobstraße 6.
