Art in an Unsettled Time

Bohemian Book Illumination before Guttenberg (c. 1375-1450)

Thirteen studies in English and German show the diversity of the production of illumination workshops between the 14th and 15th centuries, when Prague's book painting was of the top European quality, and investigates how the reform movement and the big socio-political changes of the Hussite period influenced the appearance of the manuscripts. The researchers focus on the relation of picture and text, the function of the illustration, the decoration of the often copied tracts of John Wycliffe and ask themselves what is the Hussite iconography. They pay special attention to astronomical, astrological and biblical manuscripts.
