Illuminated Manuscripts

The medieval ages are a favorite of mine. I enjoy reading the history and literature and way of life in those times.

One thing that I find fascinating is the illuminated manuscripts they made. Before the printing press, of course, books had to be copied by hand, often by monks in their monasteries. Some were plain, but others were works of art, filled with detailed illustrations. Here are links to two websites that you might enjoy if you like illuminated manuscripts:
