Throughout the Middle Ages, medieval manuscripts often featured dogs, from beautiful and loving depictions of man’s best friend, to bloodthirsty illustrations of savage beasts, to more whimsical and humorous interpretations.
Featuring stunning illustrations from the British Library’s rich medieval collection, Dogs in Medieval Manuscripts provides – through discussion of dogs both real and imaginary – an astonishing picture of the relationship of dogs to humans in the medieval world.
