Illuminated Bibles
Bury Saint Edmunds Bible
Manuscript illumination is the use of embellishment and illustration to enhance the pages of a medieval manuscript. By the Romanesque period (12th century) illuminators had become adept at integrating illustration, decoration, and text. Large Bibles were made in England with historiated initials, enlarged letters incorporating biblical scenes at the beginning of chapters or books.

The early-12th-century illuminated manuscript illustration shown depicts Moses expounding the law. The piece is divided into two scenes, the upper showing Moses and Aaron delivering the law to the Israelites, and the lower showing Moses distinguishing between the clean and unclean beasts. The illustration serves as the frontispiece for a Bible from the Abbey of Bury Saint Edmunds in England.
