Video review of Royal Manuscripts

The British Library's current major exhibition, Royal Manuscripts: The Genius of Illumination, has received some excellent reviews. Here is one, posted recently on, focusing both on the exhibition and the catalogue which accompanies it.


In the words of the reviewer, the catalogue "makes for a good compliment to those who have had the chance to view the exhibition, adding indepth details about this collection as well as dozens of wonderful images from the Middle Ages".

Also showcasing the exhibition is a television documentary, Illuminations: The Private Lives of Medieval Kings, presented by Dr Jana Ramirez. Part one airs on BBC4 on 9 January: more details to follow in the New Year.

Royal Manuscripts: The Genius of Illumination is on at the British Library until 13 March 2012 (closed on 1 January).
