CLCV 451 - The Medieval Book

Fall or Spring (3) Staff

The Medieval Book is a comprehensive survey of manuscript books from the European Middle Ages. The course starts with Umberto Eco's "The Name of the Rose" as a gateway to medieval book culture and the communities that used books most intimately. Topics will include scribal and shop practices for making books (codicology), paleography, and the reading of ancient manuscript hands, illuminations and miniatures in medieval books, and the analysis of original manuscripts and facsimiles.
