Beautiful Bifolium

The picture of a commercially produced manuscript entitled "Rosarium" written and illuminated in Bologna Italy toward the end of the 13th century is being displayed on the website of the UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. This can be found at on the archive page.

This bifolium is material evidence that commercial manuscript production was a complex Renaissance project that involved many hours of arduous work by scribes, illuminators, decorators, notators and correctors. These craftspeople were supervised by different contractors.
