Perhaps no other relic of the European Middle Ages captures our imagination more than illuminated medieval manuscripts, or those documents decorated with images and colored pigments. Serving as windows unto a lost world of kings, ladies, faith, war, and culture, they communicate complex visual and textual narratives of Europe’s collective cultural heritage and patrimony. In this fashion, illuminated manuscripts are dynamic messages from our communal past that are still relevant today in fields like graphic design and typography.

TOP REVIEWS FROM DECIPHERING SECRETS: THE ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPTS OF MEDIEVAL EUROPE
Excellent. I really enjoyed the course. I learnt loads, both theoretical and practical.
Wonderful experience to work on my own Illuminated Manuscript.
Always a pleasure to follow a course that has depth and richness.
A very interesting and enjoyable course. The Hands-on project is very worthwhile but there is quite a lot to do.
The course content is beautiful - I enjoyed the part focusing on the manuscripts more but the historical concept part was also interesting. The only suggestion could be focusing less on Spain.
