Item description for The Stammheim Missal (Getty Museum Studies on Art) by Elizabeth Teviotdale...

The Stammheim Missal is one of the most visually dazzling and theologically ambitious works of German Romanesque art. Containing the text recited by the priest and the chants sung by the choir at mass, the manuscript was produced in Lower Saxony around 1160 at Saint Michael's Abbey at Hildesheim, a celebrated abbey in medieval Germany.
This informative volume features color illustrations of all the manuscript's major decorations. The author surveys the manuscript, its illuminations, and the circumstances surrounding its creation, then explores the tradition of the illumination of mass books and the representation of Jewish scriptures in Christian art. Teviotdale then considers the iconography of the manuscript's illuminations, identifies and translates many of its numerous Latin inscriptions, and finally considers the missal and its visually sophisticated and religiously complex miniatures as a whole.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Stammheim Missal (Getty Museum Studies on Art)?

A treasure of Romanesque art  Jul 31, 2005
The Stammhein Missal was painted in the 12th century in northern Germany at the monastery of Saint Michael at Hildesheim and remained in the abbey till 1803 when the monastery was secularized. This is an outstanding work of Romanesque art with a variety of full page miniatures all enhanced with liberal amounts of gold and silver leaf.

The original book is in excellent condition and currently resides in the Getty Museum. This small book on the manuscript takes you through the history of the missal, and illustrates all the main carpet pages of the book with most of the images in colour. It is not a full reproduction of the manuscript but it is enough to let you know that you are looking at an extraordinary book that has survived in remarkable condition and this is probably the closest most of us will ever get to such a lovely early manuscript like this.

Recommended if you want to know more about Romanesque illuminated manuscripts (they are very different from the later medieval books) or to get an insight into a book which is rarely otherwise seen in art and illumination books.
