UA scholars will explore medieval texts held by Special Collections.
Speaker: Laura Hollengreen
Mary of Burgundy, only child of Duke Charles the Bold of Burgundy, was the probable owner of one of the most luxurious private prayer books of the late fifteenth century. Come see the intriguing marginalia and illusionistic miniatures that have been interpreted as both the apotheosis of late Gothic painting and the death of book illumination.
Laura Hollengreen is Associate Director of the School of Architecture. Although trained under a manuscript scholar, her earlier work has focused on the art and architecture of French Gothic cathedrals. Recently, however, in working on medieval antecedents to modern examples of augmented reality, she has begun to revisit some famous manuscripts.
