Each manuscript is a manual creation, as the term itself indicates (from the Latin manu scriptus, "manuscript"), and each illumination is the result of days or even weeks of work by one or more highly qualified people. In view of the cost of materials and production, it is not surprising that the illuminated manuscripts of the Bible were prized in their time as treasures. The illuminated manuscripts of the Bible are some of the most beautiful medieval works of art, but also less known to the general public. This beautifully illustrated selection offers us forty-five jewels from the British Library.
