- Dear Art Educators,
Linda Bee posted this to Net Gold list.
Illuminated Middle Ages:
Site is available in English- German and French:
From the site:
"The Illuminated Middle Ages database presents several hundred
recently digitized illuminated texts from French national library
collections. While the full collection, in even higher resolution, is
available for purchase on DVD-ROM, this web site gives access to the
entire database. Only a portion of the full collection has been
translated into English for the web site, but visitors may also view
the French-language galleries in the site, where a dozen texts from
each of the ten themes are presented daily."
Texts date from the year 500 through the 1400s.
