Bible production in medieval monasteries From royal collection to National Library Textual traditions and editorial revisions : Bibles from their beginnings to the standardized Bibles of the 13th century Magnificence and grandeur : luxury Bible manuscripts Biblical exegesis from the Church Fathers to scholasticism Medieval versions of history in world chronicles and history Bibles The juxtaposition of the Old and New Testaments in typological picture Bibles Bible manuscripts of the Jewish and Eastern Orthodox faiths.


The Most Beautiful Bibles covers examples from every epoch of the Middle Ages, presenting the Bible as it was visualized in both theological and historical contexts. As the beauty and significance of the illustrations are undeniable, the manuscripts are also examined from an art historical point of view. This sumptuous publication of these rare and significant manuscripts-reproduced with the impeccable quality and modest price tag for which TASCHEN is known-is a truly divine event.
