Medieval Illuminated Bestiaries

Medieval Illuminated Bestiaries

Bestiaries are Medieval illustrated encyclopaedias of animals - domestic, exotic & sometimes utterly imaginary. This lecture tells many of the stories of the beasts they depict, considers what such books were really for, who used them & how.

Presented by Donnelley Fellow Librarian of Corpus Christi Cambridge, Christopher de Hamel - probably the world's best-known expert & author on Medieval manuscripts - for The Arts Society Evesham
