Seminar in Medieval Art - Byzantine and Medieval Manuscripts

Charlie Barber
Beatrice E. Kitzinger

The course explores the fields of Byzantine and western manuscript illumination through categories of medieval books that offer scope for dissertation in both traditions. Case studies of key examples structure the sessions and the reading list. Course bibliography includes both fundamental and recent works; an emphasis on method and historiography in art history's approach to manuscript studies is a focus of the class. The course concludes with a formal colloquium and will include time in both Princeton and New York collections.
