Majestic, noble, brave lions, with their tawny coats and luminous eyes, have inspired countless stories, traditions and beliefs. Whether we are seduced by their beauty or drawn to danger, we want to be near them
Marvellous to behold : miracles in medieval manuscripts by Deirdre Jackson( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deirdre Jackson offers an original and engaging look at medieval spirituality, whilst demonstrating that miracle tales are by no means the preserve of the pious. Marvellous to Behold explores the depiction of miracles in illuminated manuscripts from Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions, relating both renowned and lesser known tales of divine intervention in the lives of believers. The book juxtaposes pictures of identical stories drawn from these three faiths, illustrating the 'shared history' of three of the world's major religions. The publication includes nearly 120 colour illustrations supported by Deirdre Jackson's scholarly commentary, unveiling little known aspects of medieval culture and beliefs. The medieval artists who illustrated manuscripts were inspired by everyday life, and their works have as much to tell us about the societies in which they lived as about the supernatural. - Publisher
Royal manuscripts : the genius of illumination by Scot McKendrick( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illuminated manuscripts collected by the kings and queens of England from the 9th to the 16th century form the heart of a unique and visually stunning collection held by the British Library. A key figure in the formation of the collection is King Edward IV (1461-1483), who commissioned luxury manuscripts decorated with his arms. Subsequent monarchs added to this library, which was given to the nation by George II in 1757. Over 150 examples from this exceptional collection are presented in this catalogue, which accompanies a major British Library exhibition of the same name. These manuscripts contain paintings produced by some of the finest artists of the Middle Ages and together provide the most vivid surviving source for understanding royal identity, moral and religious beliefs, learning, faith and international politics
Colour: the art & science of illuminated manuscripts( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This richly illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition that celebrates the bicentenary of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge with a display of its finest illuminated manuscripts. Of all the medieval and Renaissance arts - from sculptures, ivories, frescoes and stained glass to easel and wall paintings - it is manuscript illuminations, protected inside volumes, that best preserve the glowing colours and precious metals that would have dazzled their original spectators. The focus of this exciting and innovative exhibition is on COLOUR: it integrates scientific and art historical analyses of painting materials and techniques with studies on the manuscripts' historic contexts of production, including the relationships between artists and patrons. Identifications of the pigments' chemical composition and methods of application are considered alongside their aesthetic impact as well as the multiple dimensions and meanings of colour appreciated by medieval and Renaissance viewers. Over 150 manuscripts are displayed in the exhibition dating from the 8th to the 19th century and all are catalogued and fully illustrated here. The manuscripts are grouped in 14 thematic sections each of which is introduced by an essay that includes further relevant illustrations and presents the scientific and art historical analyses in a broader cultural context. The majority of the exhibits are from the Museum's collection and the main focus is on Western European illumination, but examples of Byzantine, Armenian, Persian and Sanskrit manuscripts are also included. In addition there are special loans from other Cambridge, British and European collections. The catalogue entries and introductory essays are written by a team of leading manuscript scholars, scientists and conservators who offer an integrated, cross-disciplinary approach and new insights into the art of illumination."--
Medieval women by Deirdre Elizabeth Jackson( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our understanding of the lives and roles of medieval women has changed dramatically in recent years. Far from being background characters of the middle ages, women often wielded an influence beyond their expected station. Many women fortunate enough to receive an education became patrons of literature, particularly secular tales of adventure and romance. Some bold pioneers became writers themselves. Others commissioned, or had dedicated to them, the earliest historical chronicles, bestiaries, and treatises on healthcare and military prowess. This book celebrates the importance that women across Europe assigned to reading and literature, and the many ways women advanced medieval culture
