This publication, written by the Morgan's Curator of Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts, Roger S. Wieck, tells the story of the most exquisite and splendid illuminated manuscripts — Books of Hours. Characterized by their minute dimensions and their sumptuous decoration, Books of Hours contain at heart a series of prayers devoted to the Virgin Mary, which were meant to be recited throughout the day. This book provides a detailed description of the contents of such manuscripts, explores their social context, and offers an analysis of their text.
