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.

DECIPHERING SECRETS: THE ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPTS OF MEDIEVAL EUROPE からの人気レビュー
A very interesting and enjoyable course. The Hands-on project is very worthwhile but there is quite a lot to do.
An excellent overview of a complex subject , with the rare option to explore the practical skills involved in making manuscripts , and with a forward view of new research evolving IT makes possible.
I enjoyed this course immensely. Be aware that the hands-on assignments are liable to take more than five hours each.
Excellent. I really enjoyed the course. I learnt loads, both theoretical and practical.
