Book Description

Rosalie Green’s interest in iconography provides a common thread in her work on the art of Europe during the eleventh and twelfth centuries. Three papers are concerned with one of the great medieval illuminated manuscripts – the Hortus Deliciarum of Herrad of Hohenbourg, now destroyed, but partially reconstructed in a magnificent work of scholarship to which the author contributed a chapter on the miniatures. The remainder of her work has dealt with bronze reliefs, ivories and manuscript illumination. Her papers, published over forty years, are here brought together for the first time, with the addition of a new preface by the author and a comprehensive index.
