Luttrell Psalter

Streaming Video - 2007
Rate this:
The illuminated psalm book of Sir Geoffrey Luttrell is a priceless treasure, containing beautiful calligraphy and extremely fine illustrations. Packed with scenes from the Bible and from everyday life-plus all manner of creatures, including bizarre monsters called babewyns-the book provides a mysterious glimpse of life during the Middle Ages. Section one of this charming program discusses how the psalter was made and decorated, focusing on what the paintings reveal about fashion, trade, and entertainment. In section two, images of feasting, warfare, heaven, and hell are spotlighted, providing insights into 14th-century values and the prominent role of religion in daily living.
