Fine Arts | Romanesque Manuscripts (Problems in Romanesque Art)
A623 | 26718 | Reilly


In the eleventh and twelfth centuries, monasteries began to produce a
variety of different kinds of illuminated manuscripts both to meet
their own needs, for export, and as gifts for other people and
places.  This course will explore the uses, appearance, and owners
of such manuscripts as the Giant Bibles, the Exultet Roll, the
illustrated Saint's Life, and the Psalter.  Students will lead a
reading discussion and write a critique	of a scholarly work, prepare
an in-class presentation and a research paper on a manuscript or an
aspect of manuscript production.
