Article exposure[edit]

This is a nice resource being assembled here. I wonder what ideas to have more articles link here, currently there is just one main article coming in here, and most of the sub-articles off this one are pretty much single link as well. Could imagine all sorts of more heavily trafficed high-level articles could link here either through text links in the article body or a "See also" section. Stbalbach 21:26, 8 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Reorganization[edit]

I have just completed a reorganization of this list. As part of that effort, I have removed the section of manuscripts with unknown dates, since the dates are known to the world, just not me. I have moved them here. As I discover the dates I will feed them back into the list. Dsmdgold 19:21, May 25, 2005 (UTC)

Page Move[edit]

I have decided to expand this list to cover later and non-western decorated manuscripts, therefote I am moving it from List of Late Antique, Medieval, and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts to List of illuminated manuscripts, which also has the benefit of being a more elegant title. Dsmdgold 20:14, May 31, 2005 (UTC)

I suppose that, given its current incomplete state, the page should be moved back to original title. The Slavic manuscripts were totally absent until I added the Ostromir Gospel and several others, but there are many more left out. The Armenian and Georgian entries (of which there are many dozens, dating from the 6th century onward) have been lacking until I added a few today. Currently, a reader may get impression that most illuminated MSS are kept in London, whereas the Matenadaran is said to have several thousand of them. The same applies to the Syriac, Coptic, and Muslim manuscripts, which are not listed at all. --Ghirla | talk 03:16, 19 February 2006 (UTC)
By the way, there is a good online resource for Armenian illuminations. Check http://armenianstudies.csufresno.edu/arts_of_armenia/miniatures.htm and

Golden tip[edit]

You really should take a look at Treasures of Europe's national library Would be interested in how to combine the wiki list and the one provided by The European Library. Fleurstigter 15:17, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

quite a few articles are on - someone has done the Czech ones by just copying their text, which we should not do. Johnbod 15:46, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Egbert Psalter[edit]

Isn't the complete shelf mark for this Cividale del Friuli, Archivi e Biblioteca di Palazzo dei Provveditori Veneti, Ms. 136? Also, shouldn't we change the MS's page to "Egbert Psalter" rather than the current Gertrude Psalter? The former is by far the more common designation... SGilsdorf 00:46, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Oops, wrong file--should be Cividale del Friuli, Museo Archeologico Nazionale... SGilsdorf 00:49, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

Incorrect link[edit]

I have removed the wikilink to Aviary in the "Bestiaries and Aviaries" heading, since I'm sure it should not be pointing to the article on bird cages, but rather to an article named "Aviary (manuscript)" or similar. I poked around a bit but could not find an appropriate alternate location for the link, but then again this is hardly my specialty area. Don Lammers (talk) 11:52, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Redlinks cleanup[edit]

Per the 9 mos old template, here are the redlinks removed. No lines were removed from the article. Not one visible letter was removed, but the information that was stored in the hidden part of the redlinks is lost from the source, and reproduced in a separate list below the full listing. For the most part, the titles chosen (hidden) had information reproducible from the text of the list item anyway, but not always...

Information hidden in redlinks (will be to the left of the pipe divider):
