pierpoint morgan library collection of medieval and renaissance manuscripts.

Thousands of digital images from the Pierpoint Morgan Library’s renowned collection of medieval and renaissance manuscripts are now available in CORSAIR. Spanning some ten centuries of Western illumination, the collection contains manuscripts from all the major schools, including some of the great masterpieces of medieval manuscript art. The images and accompanying descriptions are the product of an extraordinary collaboration between the Morgan and the Index of Christian Art to photograph, digitize, and describe all significant illustrations within the Morgan’s medieval and Renaissance manuscripts. CORSAIR currently includes more than five thousand medieval images, and the number is constantly growing.

so beautiful.
