Home School: 160,000 Pages of Glorious Medieval Manuscripts Digitized: Visit the Bibliotheca Philadelphiensis via Open Culture

April 6th, 2020 Comments off

We might think we have a general grasp of the period in European history immortalized in theme restaurant form as “Medieval Times.” After all, writes Amy White at Medievalists.net, “from tattoos to video games to Game of Thrones, medieval iconography has long inspired fascination, imitation and veneration.” The market for swordplay, armor, quests, and sorcery has never been so crowded.

But whether the historical period we call medieval (a word derived from medium aevum, or “middle age”) resembled the modern interpretations it inspired presents us with another question entirely—a question independent and professional scholars can now answer with free, easy reference to “high-resolution images of more than 160,000 pages of European medieval and early modern codices”: richly illuminated (and amateurishly illustrated) manuscripts, musical scores, cookbooks, and much more.

In contrast to the lovely tiled facades of other churches, this medieval church is moodier, heavier and more substantial.

Via Lambro Medieval Tower, Monza, Italy

I love that you can “happen” upon sites like this as you stroll around Europe. 

The 13th century building known as Tower of Teodolinda, located in an arterial street of the ancient medieval town, was originally part of the defensive walled structure, and was later used as a transit gate for goods from the river Lambro to the central squares. It rises in three levels, differentiated by characteristic windows.

Although the building underwent subsequent transformations, it still clearly preserves its medieval origins. — Monza Historical Web Site
