Illuminated Manuscripts Lecture by Una Renard
6:00 pm SLT @ The Library in Caledon

While we normally think of books as being private objects, the lavishly illuminated Bibbia di Borso was intended as a very public expression of princely magnificence and piety intended to win favor with the Pope. This 15th-century Bible also served as a reflection of the magnificence of his court as a whole. We will explore the complex relationship between Borso as patron, this bible, and the courtly space of the library as they're elucidated by the illuminations within the Bibbia.
