In this workshop, attendees will be introduced to the art and interior content of early medieval manuscripts. Due to their highly decorative quality, we will be using Irish texts (such as the Book of Kells) as examples to demonstrate the creative and technical processes of constructing ancient manuscripts.
This lecture explains the rationale behind the new survey of history in the period, which relies on a wide range of primary and unfamiliar texts drawn from across Europe from Moldavia to Portugal. It considers the consequences for medicine of the opening up of Europe to the wider world, as well as the results of the ever-hardening religious divide, including the fate of Arabic medicine in Iberia.
Tanya interprets contemporary subjects into expressions of historical embroidery with a delightful sense of fun, adding such details as a goat with a bow tie and a Cadbury cream egg.
As medieval combat students, we are always referring to the manuscripts of the medieval period, but how were they actually made and how long did it take to create a page or image?
