Result of the Research
Lare Antique / Early Christian era, preceding Early Middle Ages, is considered as the first golden age in the history of Western manuscript illumination. To understand the art of illumination of this period, two groups of manuscripts should be examined : those produced around the Mediterranean coasts in the 5^<th> and 6^<th>centuries, and others made in the West from the 9^<th>-century Carolingian dynasty onwards. Among these Late Antique works and copies of them, this project has dealt with secular and literary books with Greek or Latin texts and considered what their illuminations inherit from classical art and how they influenced the medieval art that followed.
