This work investigates the theoretical and personal understanding of death, and its implicit relationship with birth, as perceived in medieval society. It studies the work of one specific illuminator, reniet, whose pictures embody medieval attitudes towards death.

Michael Camille is professor of art history at the University of Chicago.Review:
Camille spent over 12 years in Europe and the U. S. tracking down medieval manuscripts that contain the work of one little-known manuscript illuminator Pierre Remiet. At once a biography of Remiet, an art history, and a review of daily life in medieval times, this title will prove hard to classify: though it will end up in art collections, its value as a rich probe of medieval images, daily life, and history should not be overlooked. -- Midwest Book Review
