Translating Truth


This handsomely produced volume examines manuscript illumination and changing conceptions of the importance of the visual in conveying religious truth following the increased emphasis placed on pastoral work at the Fourth Lateran Council (1215). Aden Kumler explores the ways in which an increasingly ambitious textual tradition promoting "spiritual excellence" interacted with manuscript illumination, and how belief was promoted through imagery.
