An Address To A Medieval City

medievalangels

I was admiring the artwork in a Medieval manuscript circa 1335 when I was struck by how the angels above really captured my current attitude towards my Twitter feed this morning. The image is from 'Address of the City of Prato to Robert of Anjou'. The text is believed to be by Convenevole da Prato (c. 1270/75-1338), a professor of grammar and rhetoric. In the address, the city of Prato beseeches the King to unite the Italian peninsula under his rule and restore the papacy to Rome. Below are more gorgeous illustrations from the manuscript, including two particularly lovely illustrations of gardens.
