This chapter discusses the reconstruction of vanished Anglo-Saxon libraries through manuscripts. The study of manuscripts which previously belonged to Anglo-Saxon libraries is possible using a wonderful and comprehensive guide — Helmust Gneuss' Handlist of Anglo-Saxon Manuscripts, published in 2001. The content of surviving Anglo-Saxon manuscripts, the survival of Anglo-Saxon manuscripts in post-Conquest English libraries, surviving manuscripts from the area of the Anglo-Saxon mission in Germany, inventories from the area of the Anglo-Saxon mission in Germany, and surviving continental manuscripts copied from lost Anglo-Saxon exemplars are discussed.

Keywords:   Anglo-Saxon libraries, ancient libraries, Anglo-Saxon manuscripts, Helmut Gneuss, manuscripts
