This study first examines the marginal repertoire in two well-known manuscripts, the Psalter of Guy de Dampierre and an Arthurian Romance, within their material and codicological contexts. This repertoire then provides a template for an extended study of the marginal motifs that appear in eighteen related manuscripts, which range from a Bible to illustrated versions of the encyclopedias of Vincent de Beauvais and Brunetto Latini. Considering the manuscript as a whole work of art, the marginaliaa€™s physical relationship to nearby texts and images can shed light on the reception of these illuminated books by their medieval viewers.Chapters 2a€“4 focus on manuscripts illuminated by the Dampierre group including a Bible, a penitential manual, ... 1270 and 1310, although slightly earlier and later works inform the major trends as well. ... compiled by the brother of the younger count, the bishop of Utrecht, and its main miniatures contain marginal motifs.
