Illuminating Resources

I didn't think of it this week when we were studying Illuminated manuscripts but a fellow blogger, Sylvia loves books even more than I do and she has illuminated manuscript links at her blog which I'll share here. So a big hat tip goes to Sylvia!

The Digital Scriptorium is an image database of medieval and renaissance manuscripts that unites scattered resources from many institutions into an international tool for teaching and scholarly research. It bridges the gap between a diverse user community and the limited resources of libraries by means of sample imaging and extensive rather than intensive cataloguing.

She has her own collection of illuminated manuscript photos.

If you're learning Latin, love books, reading the great books or like book clubs and blogs- Sylvia has one of the best blogs out there.

Hi Jessica. Thanks for the compliment. I think it's so cool that you are using illuminated manuscripts in your homeschooling. If your kids don't grow up to be bibliophiles it won't be your fault! ;)

I actually have some illuminated manuscripts --- made in today's world. I'll try to find the link to share with you if I can locate their web site.
