Event Description

Thursday, October 10th, 7:00 p.m.

Co-sponsored by Department of Art History and Medieval and Renaissance Center

The lecture examines some nagging questions concerning a luxurious illuminated manuscript of the life and miracles of St. Denis, “apostle to the French.” Now in the Bibliothèque nationale de France (ms. Fr. 2090–2092), the book was a gift to King Philip V of France from the abbot of Saint-Denis in 1317. Although planned with great care and executed lavishly, the circumstances of its commission and many other aspects of the manuscript remain enigmatic.
