Mediaeval Books of Hours
Lecturer: Christopher de Hamel
Books of Hours are medieval prayer books for the laity, usually beautifully illuminated with pictures of religious and secular scenes. The lecture looks at what is contained in such manuscripts how we can date and localise them, and how they were actually made.
