The Book of Hours was the most widely owned and most personal book of the later Middle Ages. Used for private, domestic devotions, it was often elaborately illuminated and illustrated, and its content reveals much about the owner’s daily life, whatever their social rank or position. Nigel Morgan, Honorary Professor of the History of Art, University of Cambridge, will discuss the special qualities of the English Book of Hours.
