Description

This, the third in a series of works on medieval manuscript illumination, focuses on the lives of women in medieval civilization. As well as documentation concerning the history of the manuscrpit itself, the illuminations show female costume and activities. Among the women depicted are those from the upper classes, but also women of antiquity, goddesses, Lady Fortune and the Virgin Mary. Many of the illuminations date from the 15th century - the height of manuscript illumination.
