Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Most Beautiful Bibles covers examples from every epoch of the Middle Ages, presenting the Bible as it was visualized in both theological and historical contexts. As the beauty and significance of the illustrations are undeniable, the manuscripts are also examined from an art historical point of view. This sumptuous publication of these rare and significant manuscripts-reproduced with the impeccable quality and modest price tag for which TASCHEN is known-is a truly divine event.

Synopsis:

A team of 15 scholars describes each biblical manuscript in detail and explores the evolution of the Bible, as well as the medieval understanding of history that is inherent in these versions of the Bible. Also includes a glossary of important biblical terms.
