Anne D. Hedeman
University of Kansas, Lawrence (Lawrence, KS 66045-7505)
Gothic Manuscripts, 1320-1390

Research and preparation of of a co-authored book on medieval illuminated manuscripts from France during the 14th century.

Anne D. Hedeman in collaboration with Elizabeth Morrison will co-author Gothic Manuscripts, 1320-1390, a volume in the series A Survey of Manuscripts Illuminated in France. The volume’s co-authored introductory essay and analysis of 100-150 individual manuscripts, with each scholar contributing fifty to seventy-five analyses, will create an indispensable reference work for established scholars while offering beginning scholars an overview of the visual culture of a distant time and place and of the material, intellectual, and art historical significance of fourteenth-century books. Fourteenth-century illumination in France has not been as well-studied as that from other eras. This volume will reveal that it is the very circumstances of political and societal upheaval in the fourteenth century that drove the book market to be one of the most active and inventive, impelling new types of books, illumination programs, and stylistic experimentation.
