‘Glorious Illuminations: The Art of the Illuminated’

December 13, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Navigation

Before the introduction of printing to Western Europe during the mid 15th Century all books were written by hand. The most luxurious manuscripts were illuminated, lit up by decorations, pictures, brightly coloured pigments and gold leaf. Masterpieces such as the Lindisfarne Gospels are famous but for every one of these “stars” there are thousands of less elaborate manuscripts. Each tell us something of the faith, politics and economics that underpinned daily life. Our lecturer, Mrs Clare Ford-Wille an art historian has lectured on European Art, architecture and sculpture for more than 30 years.
