Maria Alessandra BILOTTA (edited by), Medieval Europe in Motion 3. The Circulation of Jurists, Legal Manuscripts and Artistic, Cultural and Legal Practices in Medieval Europe (13th-15th centuries), Introduction by M.J. BRANCO; Conclusions by M. ASCHERI, Palermo, Officina di Studi Medievali, 2021

The knowledge of movement is of crucial importance in carrying out cultural and intellectual processes: it is not only a physical action but also a factor of communication and exchange which facilitates dialogue and interaction between different territories and cultures. The main objective of the essays in this volume is to analyse the phenomena of mobility and circulation of people, ideas and objects related to the study and practice of the Law, whether we are addressing the intellectual elites, the texts and manuscripts (illuminated or not), their artistic models, or the circulation of the Law itself, and to study ideas connected to the practice of Law and its role in the Medieval West in general. This volume focuses on the most Southern territories (Iberian Peninsula, Southern France and Italy) of the Medieval West, and the circulation of people and ideas and objects connected to the practice of Law during the 13th to15th centuries: such is the privileged sphere of the debate in this volume. This book aims at debating and analysing the ways in which the phenomena of mobility interacted with processes of codification and teaching of the Law, while they also influenced its visual representation in the manuscripts’ illuminations.
This publication is also a part of the research work conducted by the IUS ILLUMINATUM research team.

The volume counts with the participation of some members of the IUS ILLUMINATUM research team. In addition to Maria Alessandra Bilotta, in fact, are authors in the volume Andrea Improta, Gianluca del Monaco, Jorge Jiménez Lopez, Andrea Bartocci, Marta Mangini, Maria João Branco, Arkadiusz Adamczuk, Maria Teresa Chicote Pompanin, Ángel Fuentes Ortiz.

Samuel GRAS, Anne-Marie LEGARE (eds.), Lumières du Nord Les manuscrits enluminés français et flamands de la Bibliothèque nationale d’Espagne, Lille, 2021

Lumières du Nord is the culmination of an international research project on French and Flemish illuminated manuscripts from the Biblioteca Nacional de España (BNE). The book brings together twelve contributions signed by European and American specialists in the art of illumination who provide an in-depth analysis of unpublished or unknown manuscripts from the Madrid collection. These studies are mostly the result of lectures given during two study days organized in Lille and Madrid in 2018. The Biblioteca Nacional de España keeps the largest collection of manuscripts in the country, but this unique collection had not yet benefited from all the attention he deserved. The collaboration between the IRHiS laboratory and the Manuscripts department of the BNE has brought to light some of these treasures. The articles update information on the dating, attribution and conditions of creation of these manuscripts, and contribute to a better knowledge of the prestigious BNE collection.

Among the manuscripts studied, a precious legal manuscript stands out; this manuscripts is of south French origin and was studied by Maria Alessandra Bilotta, PI and coordinator of our research team.
