Sinopsis: One of the finest of all medieval apocalypse manuscripts, the Douce Apocalypse was part of a series of illuminated texts that brought St. John’s apocalyptic visions to life.
Now the manuscript—created sometime between 1250 and 1275—reaches an entirely new audience at the hands of noted scholar Nigel Morgan. The Douce Apocalypse explores the manuscript’s royal patronage, looks at its fascinating imagery, and examines its significance in light of contemporary prophecy. The commentary is accompanied by lush, full-color illustrations.
As Morgan relates, the Douce Apocalypse is especially enlightening because of its unfinished nature. A few of its images remain incomplete—and such absences give insight into the artist’s painstaking techniques of drawing, gilding, and painting. The second volume in the Treasures from the Bodleian Library series, The Douce Apocalypse will convey both the beauty of the original and the enduring fascination of its contents.
About the Author: Nigel Morgan was, until his recent retirement, professor of medieval art history at the University of Oslo. He is author of the two-volume set Early Gothic Manuscripts 1190–1285 and contributing author to monographs on the Lambeth, Gulbenkian, and Trinity Apocalypses.

Descripción Estado de conservación: New. The Douce Apocalypse is among the finest of a series of illustrated copies of the Apocalypse, the Revelation of St John, made in England between 1250 and 1275 for Prince Edward, later Edward I, and his wife Eleanor of Castile. The Apocalypse text, provided with a commentary, is illustrated with exquisite pictures. The dragon and the beast, symbolising the Devil and the Antichrist, are shown in their attempt to dominate the world, eventually to be overcome by Christ and the angels. This lavishly illustrated book introduces and explores its imagery, its artistic creation and its contemporary significance in the context of Antichrist prophecies. As is evident in a few pictures, the artist had only partially completed his work, providing insight into the techniques of medieval illumination. Nº de ref. de la librería 2147
