Item description for Manuscripts In Transition: Recycling Manuscripts, Texts And Images. (Corpus of Illuminated Manuscripts, V. 15.) by Brigitte Dekeyzer, Jan Van Der Stock & Jan Van Der Stock...
Manuscripts in Transition: Recycling Manuscripts, Texts and Images gathers together some 40 contributions by art historians specialised in research into book illuminations from the time of Charlemagne to Charles V's Habsburg empire (c. 800-c. 1550). The accent is mainly on the art of the illumination in the Gothic, Burgundian and Post- Burgundian periods. This anthology is the product of an international conference held in Brussels in 2002 in connection with the exhibition "Medieval Mastery: Book Illumination from Charlemagne to Charles the Bold (800-1475)" (Leuven, Stedelijk Museum Vander Kelen-Mertens). The central focus of the conference was the systematic reuse of texts and images in the Middle Ages. The examination of this theme resulted in the present fascinating series of articles.
