Decorated Manuscripts in Sixteenth-and Seventeenth-Century England
Manuscript studies scholars are well versed in the rich illuminations and miniatures in late-medieval English manuscripts, but scholars have spent less time considering the culture of decorated manuscripts in the early modern period. This talk by Dr. Wilkie will explore the culture of commissioning that created these highly illustrated and personal manuscripts in late-Tudor and early-Stuart England, the role the College of Arms played in their creation, and influences from continental books.
