Workshop: "After the Carolingians: Manuscript Illumination in the 10-11th Centuries"

Thu, Nov 30, 2017, 9:30 am

This conference and edited volume represent the first international effort dedicated to exploring continental European illuminated manuscripts from the multifaceted, still poorly understood era of the tenth and eleventh centuries. The project demonstrates how the study of manuscripts revises and enriches our knowledge of this elusive historical period.

Co-sponsored by the Department of Art & Archaeology, the Council for the Humanities, the Committee for the Study of Late Antiquity, the Center for the Study of Religion, and the Program in Medieval Studies.
