Stolen books from the University Library

Unfortunately, there have been thefts at the University Library over the years. The most spectacular was the theft of the Codex Argenteus in 1995. The pages that were stolen were returned later that year. During the 1980s a number of books were stolen, and in April 2017 a police report was filed in order to increase the possibility to get them back.
