A deluxe Gospel-book During the Carolingian period, ivory carvings were often included as part of the decoration on covers.

One of the most famous ivory workshops was located in Northeastern France, in Metz, during the episcopate of Drogon (r. –55) – an illegitimate son of Charlemagne and a great patron of the arts – and prospered. Medieval prayer-books could contain a wide variety of texts, often written in Latin, the language of the Church.

This book examines the literary representation of madness in a series of medieval French texts, including both romance and hagiography. The study covers both ‘genuine’ madmen and ‘holy fools’, for whom madness is actually a veil for penance or sanctity.

Search Tips. Phrase Searching You can use double quotes to search for a series of words in a particular order. For example, "World war II" (with quotes) will give more precise results than World war II (without quotes). Wildcard Searching If you want to search for multiple variations of a word, you can substitute a special symbol (called a "wildcard") for one or more letters.

This seems a sensible step-up given the limited capacity that came with a single platform – note that the individuals in Figures all have books nearby that do not fit on their carousel.

This book explores the relations between humans and other animals as they appear to a reader of medieval bestiaries, given that almost all of them are realized as parchment books and that parchment, although made from animal skin, looks much like human skin.
