Abstract

Manuscripts, due to their complex nature, can be approached in a variety of different ways and the aim of this session is to reflect this diversity
of perspectives. The papers will be concerned with iconography, text-image relationship, questions of patronage, devotional practices, and the role of the book in the Late Middle Ages. They will also illustrate the vitality of artistic exchanges in that period, with a particular focus on France.
