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.
