Animals, both factual and fantastic, fill the pages of medieval bestiaries. These compilations of animal lore and legend merge the familiar with the strange, the local with the distant, and the desirable with the dangerous. Join Deirdre Jackson, Assistant Curator of Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts, as she focuses on the Morgan’s “Worksop Bestiary” (MS M.81), made in England around 1185, which contains vibrant images of over 100 creatures. The entire manuscript can be viewed online.Buy tickets/get more info now
