Perhaps no other relic of the European Middle Ages captures our imagination more than illuminated medieval manuscripts, or those documents decorated with images and colored pigments. Serving as windows unto a lost world of kings, ladies, faith, war, and culture, they communicate complex visual and textual narratives of Europe’s collective cultural heritage and patrimony. In this fashion, illuminated manuscripts are dynamic messages from our communal past that are still relevant today in fields like graphic design and typography.

Wonderful experience to work on my own Illuminated Manuscript.
Always a pleasure to follow a course that has depth and richness.
Very illuminating and interesting Course! I really enjoyed the combination of theory and hands-on!
Fantastic class. Learned a lot. Great info for anyone interested in art, history, or books. Love that there were two types of assignments. Good mix of reading and video.
The course content is beautiful - I enjoyed the part focusing on the manuscripts more but the historical concept part was also interesting. The only suggestion could be focusing less on Spain.
