A new monograph on the Velislav Bible

The Velislav Bible belongs to the most famous of the medieval Bohemian manuscripts. It is a "picture bible" in which imagery is dominant over word. In the new monograph edited by Lenka Panušková from the Institute of Art History all the essays target the relationship between word and image. Exploring this relationship enables the authors to think about the audience for which the manuscript was intended. The book was published by the Amsterdam University Press in 2018. Co-authors are Anna Kernbach, Milena Bartlová, Pavlína Cermanová, Lucie Doležalová and Kateřina Horníčková.

Art in an Unsettled Time

A new book "Art in an Unsettled Time. Bohemian Book Illumination before Gutenberg (c. 1375 –1450)" has been just published. The volume edited by Milada Studničková (IAH CAS) and Maria Theisen (ÖAW) brings 13 essays in English and German. The publication illustrates how the turbulent end of the 14th century and the socio-political changes of the Hussite period influenced the form of manuscript production. The researchers focus on the relationship between text and image, the function of the depiction, the "mass production" of manuscripts, and the question of what Hussite iconography is. The book also acquaints the readers with unknown or little-known manuscripts.
