Medieval Illuminated Manuscripts Exhibition Organized by Students at Carleton College, MN

Screen shot 2014-11-23 at 22.14.26The Laurence McKinley Gould Library of Carleton College, MN, has been holding an exhibition on medieval illuminated manuscripts since November 5, 2014. Titled Process of Illumination: Word, Image and the Scribal Imagination in the Middle Ages, the exhibit has been organized by a group of history students, under the supervision of William North, whose work touches upon domains including medieval history, hagiography, early Christian thought and asceticism. With the illuminated manuscripts, the exhibition aims to explore how meaning is produced — or, “illuminated” — between image and text, as well as what literacy signified in the Middle Ages. The exhibition will continue until January 5, 2015.
