      Dear Art Educators,

      Linda Bee posted this to Net Gold list.

      Illuminated Middle Ages:
      http://www.moyenageenlumiere.com/themes/index.cfm?sw=EN
      Site is available in English- German and French:
      http://www.moyenageenlumiere.com/

      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.

      Themes:
      Time and Space
      The Legal Imagination
      Animals
      Knowledge and Education
      Mankind, the Family, and Kinship
      Showing the Invisible
      Work and Daily life
      Faces of God
      Signs and Forms of Power
      A World in the Margins

      I will be adding a link to this site to the Medieval Manuscripts links page.

      Regards,
