The Making of Medieval Illuminated Manuscripts

Dr Sally Dormer

Illuminated manuscripts are some of the most beautiful artefacts to survive from the Middle Ages.  Their production involved transforming animal skins into parchment; copying texts; painting and gilding minatures; and binding folios between boards, a process that reveals much about medieval scribal and artistic practice.

The other lectures in this series are:
      Drawings in Anglo-Saxon Manuscripts
      Illuminated Psalter Manuscripts
