The illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages are among the greatest works of European art and literature. We are dazzled by them and recognize their crucial role in the transmission of knowledge.

Some five hundred years ago, Sandro Botticelli, a painter of humble origin, created works of unearthly beauty.
