Bible (illuminated manuscript; Unknown Italian (Italian Illuminator); around 1280-1290; J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center (Los Angeles, Los A...; 83.MA.60; Ms. Ludwig I 11)
Note: 574 folios + 3 flyleaves, 84 historiated initials, numerous decorated initials. Monks, angels, and musicians depicted within scrolling vines fill the margins of this Bible made in Bologna in the late 1200s. This city is the site of a thriving university founded in 1221, and the institution created a great demand for manuscript production. Representations of Dominican monks and saints important to the Dominican order appear throughout the pages of this manuscript, suggesting that it was probably made for a Dominican community. In the first half of the thirteenth century, the Dominicans undertook several revisions of the Vulgate--Saint Jerome's fifth-century Latin translation of the Bible--of which this is one edition. Corrections appear in the margins of this copy of the Bible indicating that it was carefully checked for accuracy after its completion.
