‘In the custom of this country’: The Migration of Decorative Style in Thirteenth-century Reading Abbey Manuscripts


This paper discusses the emergence of a specific decorative technique, developed by scribes producing legal textbooks in late twelfth-century Bologna. The migration of this marginal, penwork technique is traced from Bologna to Paris and Oxford, and identified in surviving manuscripts known to have been in the possession of Reading Abbey in the thirteenth-century.
