Travel through seven centuries of history and across multiple continents with the Crusader Bible, one of the most celebrated French illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages. Having passed through many hands, the Crusader Bible contains inscriptions in Latin, Persian, and Judeo-Persian. It also features some of the most compelling visualizations of the Old Testament, with biblical characters depicted as battling knights in contemporary arms and armor within medieval France. Explore how these intriguing illuminations and inscriptions showcase the intersection of politics, culture, and religion of the period.
