Building the Medieval World. Part of the Medieval Imagination Series). by Christine Sciacca. Some of the great and lasting achievements of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance are the architectural wonders of soaring cathedrals and grand castles and palaces. While many of these edifices survive, many more are lost, and it is within the pages of illuminated manuscripts that we often find the best record of the appearance of these amazing buildings.

Female stereotypes existed in the medieval world, but so too did women of power and influence.

Sciacca, a curator of manuscripts at the J. Paul Getty Museum, has compiled an entertaining and beautifully illustrated survey of manuscript pages at the Getty, focusing on what they tell about medieval architecture and construction. Written for the non-specialist, a description accompanies each manuscript painting, describing the story it tells as well as the clues it gives to medieval building. A short list of bibliography concludes the book.
