Recently, Spanish authorities recovered a medieval codex (Codex Calixtinus) that was stolen about one year ago from the pilgrimage Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, in Galicia, Spain. This good news is a grand opportunity to learn more about the codex involved and about its role in the formation of the identity of Europe and of the identity of Spain, courtesy of the fine Oxford University Press Blog at this link.
