From the Bestiary

by Heather R. Darsie

This series of posts will feature different animals found in illuminated bestiaries. From August 2017, the following source will be used for all beasts:

Barber, Richard: translation and introduction. Bestiary: Being an English Version of the Bodleian Library, Oxford. M. S. Bodley 764. All original miniatures reproduced in facsimile. Woodbridge: 1999.

The source shall be abbreviated as “MS Bodley 764 facsimile.”

This post will be updated from time to time to provide information on any other bestiaries, and their abbreviations, used.
