Description Ottonian Book Illumination: An Historical Study de Henry Mayr-Harting:
It explains, historically and with illustrations, many of them in colour, the origins and momentum of a movement of German art, and shows, through art, how religion and political ideology were intertwined in Ottonian culture from about 950 to 1050. Dr Mayr-Harting, well known as a medieval historian, was Slade Professor of Fine Art at Oxford during Michaelmas Term 1987, and the present work is an expanded version of his Slade Lectures. In this volume the author traces the relationship between Ottonian society and its artistic expression through a comparative examination of the major illuminated manuscripts of the period, including the two great imperial books, the Gospel Book of Otto III and the Pericopes Book of Henry II, as well as other liturgical manuscripts. He concentrates on the significance of the themes represented in these manuscripts and the extent to which they reflect the religious thought, ritual and devotional attitudes of the imperial court as well as Ottonian society in general.
