Monsters and grotesques in medieval manuscripts by Alixe Bovey( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The monstrous creatures that embellish the pages of medieval manuscripts have a long pedigree. From their origins in classical antiquity, the Bible, scientific writing and folklore they travelled through centuries and civilisations to find vivid expression in medieval religion, literature and art." "It is easy to forget that these creatures are not merely decorative but often have symbolic importance. Griffins and satyrs, dragons and demons, unicorns, serpents and many other creatures provide evocative and revealing expressions of medieval thought, morality and humour." "Monsters and Grotesques in Medieval Manuscripts describes the rich and varied symbolism of monsters, as depicted in an extensive range of medieval manuscripts from The British Library's collections, and lends a special insight into the medieval imagination."--BOOK JACKET
Magic in medieval manuscripts by Sophie Page( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in Spanish and English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Diverse forms of magic were practised in the Middle Ages, from simple charms to complex and subversive rituals to summon demons. Magic in Medieval Manuscripts explores the place of magic in the medieval world, examining representations of the magician, wise-woman and witch, magical objects and ritual procedures." "Illustrated throughout from The British Library's extensive collections, Magic in Medieval Manuscripts shows how magic texts and images formed part of life in the Middle Ages. Whether expressing piety, ambition or daring, the practice of magic reveals a medieval fascination with the secrets of nature and the points of contact between this world and the celestial and infernal realms."--Jacket
