Medieval Bestiaries and Their Original Purpose (a Book of Beasts: The Bestiary in the Medieval World event)

Bestiaries are medieval European encyclopedias of both real and fantastical animals, and are among the most enchanting and endearing of all illuminated manuscripts. Renowned manuscript expert Christopher de Hamel looks at what a bestiary comprises and where these manuscripts were made. He also asks bigger questions about their original purpose and how their owners used them. The answers take us into the medieval understanding of how the world was created.
