The Passau Evangelary - The documentation folder

Romanesque manuscript illumination at its finest!

Quaternio Editions Lucerne has prepared for you a portfolio documenting the Passau Evangelary. This cloth portfolio measuring 28 × 39.5 cm contains a double-page spread of facsimiles of four pages of the original. The special, hand-finished paper for the facsimile edition is very close in terms of touch and sound to the parchment of the original, which is more than 800 years old. Extensive captions explain the splendid miniature of the Presentation in the Temple and the gold inhabited initial. A richly illustrated, sixteen-page information brochure introduces you to this extraordinary and rare example of manuscript illustration in Passau from the age of the Hohenstaufen Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa.
