The Making of L'Abreujamen de las estorias (Egerton MS. 1500)

2013

Abstract

L’Abreujamen de las estorias (BL, Egerton MS. 1500) is an Occitan diagrammatic chronicle executed in Avignon in 1321-24. It is composed of synchronic tables, regnal lists and genealogical diagrams, and is illustrated with more than sixteen-hundred miniature busts. Written instructions, corrections, sketches and unfinished miniatures attest to different stages in the production of this complex manuscript. They also shed light on the involvement of the author, Fra Paolino Veneto, in its production.
