Psycho Horses!: A case study of the British Library’s Psychomachia
Instructor's Kingdom: Atlantia, Time Zone: EST
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
In the British Library there is a 10thc illuminated manuscript of the Psychomachia, a poem of almost 1000 lines by the 5thc Roman poet Prudentius. The Psychomachia is describes the challenges of vices and virtues for the human soul in a battle style.
This manuscript has very interesting illuminations of horse barding that I have yet to see anywhere else and want to examine closer — with you!— as I contemplate recreating it for an eventual persona pentathlon.
This class will not be recorded.
