J. Kelpius manuscripts are star in Historical Society of Pennsylvania re-opening


Strolled into the new refurbished and reconstructed HSP and saw four display

cases , all temp and humidity controlled with a glass case over the items to

prevent the historical works from being handled by mere humans. But on the

positive side…there it is for all to see, the Johannes Kelpius journal as I found

and reported on them earlier. So if you have some time, drop over at 13th

and Locust streets and go in to view the objects produced by Pennsylvania’s

German immigrant mystics who lived on the Wissahickon creek, approximately

on the Ridge.
