Monkey knight and monkey squire


Got Medieval, a blog that has recently devoted a lot of time to marginalia (marginal illustrations in manuscripts), especially those of monkeys, features a whole monkey chivalric graphic-romance.

Medieval Manuscripts on video


Dr. Richard Scott Nokes has posted links to two YouTube clips on his blog Unlocked
Wordhoard
;
they are the product of one Raul Quintanilla from Nicaragua.

Raul's videos feature images from medieval manuscripts and the music of Hildegard von Bingen. The first shows many pictures of how such manuscripts were produced.

Enjoy!
