Late Medieval Art and Illuminated Manuscripts
Elizabeth Moodey (Tufts, B.A.; University of Delaware, M.A.; Princeton, M.A., Ph.D.) teaches the history of illuminated manuscripts, the culture of the Burgundian court, and the art of medieval Europe, with an emphasis on materials and technique and questions of patronage. Her book, Illuminated Crusader Histories for Philip the Good of Burgundy (Brepols Publishers, 2012), examines the varieties of history writing and the visual and literary projects initiated at the duke's court before and after the Fall of Constantinople in 1453.
