Bifolium Excised from a Carolingian Gradual, c. 830-860. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Bifolium Excised from a Carolingian Gradual, c. 830-860. Creator: Unknown

Bifolium Excised from a Carolingian Gradual, c. 830-860. This rare leaf comes from a cantatorium or gradual, a book containing the chants to be sung during the Mass. Other leaves from the same book survive in Berlin and Trier. A bifolium, or double-leaf, it does not contain decorated letters but rather "emphasized" letters. These were enlarged and pushed out into the margins to call attention to the eye. Such emphasized letters originated in late classical times and were the precursor to the decorated initial developed by medieval scribes. The purple-stained vellum (now faded to a deep pink) with its text written in gold and silver inks (now turned black) suggested great luxury with its sumptuous appearance. In Mediterranean regions, the purple dye was obtained from murex, a shell-fish dye. In northern Europe, plant dyes were used as an alternative. Combined with the use of gold and silver ink (now turned black) a spectacular appearance was achieved that is traceable back to classical antiquity

Alfred in the Neatherds Cottage, (mid 19th century). Creator: J Rogers Featured Print

Alfred in the Neatherds Cottage, (mid 19th century). Creator: J Rogers

Alfred in the Neatherd's Cottage, (mid 19th century). Youngest son of King AEthelwulf, Alfred (849-899 AD) became King of Wessex during a time of constant Viking attack. He was driven into hiding by a Viking raid into Wessex, led by the Dane, Guthorm, and took refuge in the Athelney marshes in Somerset. According to legend, he was given shelter by a peasant woman who, unaware of his identity, told him to watch some wheaten cakes she had left cooking on the fire. He is shown here flexing his bow, as the neatherd's wife rebukes him for allowing her cakes to burn. [John Tallis & Company, London & New York]
