About this Item

304 pp; scholarly overview of how at the end of the first millennium, the beleaguered Christian communities of Spain, who were still dominated by Islam, experienced a profound spiritual crisis. Cut off from the rest of Europe and obsessed by the imminence of God's judgement, these people made of their illuminated manuscripts art forms of extraordinary expressive power. More than 20 manuscripts survive, dating from 900 to 1100, all illuminated in a bizarre and colourful style known as Mozarabic, and depicting an invented world peopled by angelic warriors, demons and beasts, exotic birds and serpents and luxuriant trees. The Bea This study explores the context and role of the illuminations and explains their dense theological meaning without dissipating their magic; profusely illustrated with 146 full-color plates and numerous b & w reproductions. This copy is the 1996 Reprint of worked orignally published by Ediciones Encuentro in 1994. Bookseller Inventory # 71629
