A Century of British Medieval Studies

British Academy

This chapter examines the history and developments in study of medieval manuscript books in Britain during the twentieth century. The twentieth century saw the study of the manuscript book rightly move from the margins to centre stage in British medieval studies. However, much of what was accomplished was due to the heroic labours of a small number of dedicated and determined individuals rather than to coherent institutional support. In addition, Great Britain still lags behind France and Germany in manuscript book research.
