The illuminated manuscripts of medieval England are not only outstanding works of art – each one an art gallery in itself – they give us an invaluable insight into the lives of those who made and used them, and into the age in which they were made. The books that form the focus are chosen to help us understand the contexts for book production in different periods and circumstances. The politics, people, environments and techniques behind the projects will be introduced by a study of each of the works in question. These case studies include: the Book of Kells, the Anglo-Saxon Scientific Miscellany, Giraldus Cambrensis's Topography of Ireland, the Aberdeen Bestiary, and the Rothschild Hours.
