Description

This gorgeous edition brings together 50 of the finest  medieval bible manuscripts from the Austrian National Library. With  examples from every epoch of the Middle Ages, the collection explores  visualizations of the bible in various theological and historical  contexts. In impeccable reproduction quality, these stunning images may  be appreciated as much as art historical treasures as they are important  religious artifacts. Texts by Andreas Fingernagel, Stephan  Füssel, Christian Gastgeber, and a team of 15 scientific authors  describe each manuscript in detail, exploring both the evolution of the  Bible and the medieval understanding of history. A glossary of important  terms is also included so that those not versed in bible history can  enjoy the texts as well.

Part of the Bibliotheca Universalis series.
