Abstract

The surviving pages of the “Beauvais Missal,” a late 13th-century illuminated manuscript owned by Beauvais priest Robert of Hangest, display some of the richest examples of Northern French manuscript ornamentation of the turn of the 14th century. Yet the book as a whole has been little studied. This paper considers the circumstances surrounding the creation and donation of the manuscript, by examining the painted style of its illuminations and the meaningful iconography of its miniatures.
