“The Pavement Hours in Literary History”
Tuesday, March 19
Maple Room, Indiana Memorial Union
The book of hours was by far the most common book of the late Middle Ages. This talk will consider the implications of that fact for the vernacular literary cultures that surrounded the popular prayerbook, focusing in particular on one complex illustrated manuscript from late-medieval York, the Pavement Hours (York Minster XVI.K.6).
Reception to follow.
Presented by the Department of English and the Medieval Studies Institute of Indiana University.
