ARTH 211 - Illuminated Manuscripts

FC ARHU WINT
4 credits
From 500 to 1500, the hand-written codex operated at the heart of medieval culture. Texts, copied and recopied over hundreds of years, were important conveyors of many types of ‘knowledge’ about history, religion, science and proper behavior to name but a few for which pictures served as amplification, commentary and/or explanation. This course traces the history of medieval manuscripts and will include visits to Special Collections to view actual manuscripts.
