Das Sakramentar Von Beauvais: Vollständige Faksimile-Ausgabe Der Handschrift Ms. Ludwig V 1 Aus Dem J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, Elizabeth Teviotdale Dec 2010

Das Sakramentar Von Beauvais: Vollständige Faksimile-Ausgabe Der Handschrift Ms. Ludwig V 1 Aus Dem J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A facsimile of a ten-leaf fragment of an illuminated sacramentary. The commentary includes a close examination of the object itself (physical properties, text, writing, and painting), considers the fragment's place in the oeuvre of the main scribe, and evaluates the artistic comparanda. A new understanding—anticipated in the work of Guy Lanoë—of the probable circumstances of the manuscript's creation is offered: that the sacramentary was made almost certainly at the behest of Roger, bishop of Beauvais from 998 to 1016, for his cathedral church of Saint Peter.


Pembroke College 302: Abbreviated Gospel Book Or Gospel Lectionary?, Elizabeth Teviotdale Dec 2009

Pembroke College 302: Abbreviated Gospel Book Or Gospel Lectionary?, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A consideration of the character of the text of Cambridge, Pembroke College, MS 302, a series of excerpts from the four canonical Gospels in (with one exception) biblical order preceded by an incomplete set of canon tables, a manuscript produced in England in the mid-11th century. Concludes that it was probably created as a private devotional book for a high-ranking Benedictine monk, a prayer book intended to resemble a Gospel book and to present a full account of the life of Christ.

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A study of the figural decoration of a late 11th-century gradual from Toulouse (London, BL, MS Harley 4951, fols. 121-301), concluding that the psalmodic origin of the texts of many chants of the mass informed the way in which those of the 11th century conceived the chants.

The Stammheim Missal As Tribute To Saint Bernward's Interest In Art, Elizabeth Teviotdale Feb 2001

The Stammheim Missal As Tribute To Saint Bernward's Interest In Art, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

An examination of the circumstances of the creation of the Stammheim Missal (Los Angles, J. Paul Getty Museum, MS 64) and the Ratmann Missal (Hildesheim, Dom-Museum, DS 37) in the decades after the monks of St. Michael's at Hildesheim, where the manuscripts were created, had been granted the privilege in 1150 to venerate their founder, Bishop Bernward (d. 1022) as a saint. Proposes that the Stammheim Missal was not intended to be consulted during the mass, the Ratmann Missal serving that requirement, and that it served rather as a repository of the monastery's liturgy and as a sort ...

The Frontispiece Miniatures Of The Stammheim Missal, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

Examines the frontispiece miniatures of Los Angeles, J. Paul Getty Museum, MS 64, proposing that the direct reflection of the art patronized by Bishop Bernward of Hildesheim (d. 1022) is a key component in the manuscript's role as a testament to Bernward.

Who Was Gevehard?, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Discusses the relationship between the Stammheim Missal (Los Angeles, J.

The Getty Anglo-Saxon Leaves And New Testament Illustration Around The Year 1000, Adam Cohen, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A study of the two surviving leaves of an Anglo-Saxon gospel book (Los Angeles, J. Paul Getty Museum, MS 9), concluding that the text was based on an Irish-influenced recension of the text transmitted to England by Breton manuscripts of the late Carolingian period and that a Carolingian model can also be proposed for the illustrations of the parent manuscript.

From Choir Book To Scrap Book: The Initials In Hmml Bean Ms 3, Elizabeth Teviotdale Jun 1996

From Choir Book To Scrap Book: The Initials In Hmml Bean Ms 3, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A consideration of the origin of a group of cuttings contained in a 19th-century album (Collegeville, Hill Monastic Manuscript Library, Bean MS 3), with an analysis is the relationship of the initials' figural subjects to the texts they introduced. The cuttings, a series of historiated and decorated initials, were taken from one of a pair of choir books made in northern France or Flanders for a house of Cistercian nuns in the 13th century.


750 Years In The Life Of A Pair Of Cistercian Antiphonals, Elizabeth Teviotdale Dec 1995

750 Years In The Life Of A Pair Of Cistercian Antiphonals, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

Examines the provenance and dissemination of a multivolume antiphonary produced for the Cistercian nunnery near Cambrai. The MS is presently dispersed through several collections. In 1983 the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, purchased from the German art collectors Peter and Irene Ludwig 19 leaves and four cuttings from the MS (MS Ludwig VI 5).

One leaf is kept at the Cleveland Museum of Art (inv. no. 85.83), and cuttings are at the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm (B 1730-32) and in a private collection in Collegeville, Minnesota (Hill Monastic ...


The "Hereford Troper" And Hereford, Elizabeth Teviotdale Dec 1994

The "Hereford Troper" And Hereford, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

The probability of a Hereford origin for the so-called Hereford Troper (London, BL, MS Cotton Caligula A.xiv (troper) is re-examined. The longstanding opinion that the paintings in the troper share an exclusive stylistic affinity with those in a gospel lectionary known to have been at Hereford at an early date (Cambridge, Pembroke College, MS 302) is challenged, and it is proposed that the Hereford provenance of the 11th-century gospel-lectionary does not constitute reliable evidence concerning the origin of the troper (now also called the Caligula Troper).


Some Thoughts On The Place Of Origin Of The Cotton Troper, Elizabeth Teviotdale Dec 1991

Some Thoughts On The Place Of Origin Of The Cotton Troper, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

Argues that the first fragment in London, BL, MS Cotton Caligula A.xiv was copied at Winchester Old Minster or at Worcester either for the cathedral priory at Worcester or for a highly-placed individual at Worcester. The published version of a paper given at the fourth meeting of the Cantus Planus Study Group of the International Musicological Society (September 3-8, 1990) in Pécs.

The Filiation Of The Music Illustrations In A Boethius In Milan And In The Piacenza Codice Magno, Elizabeth Teviotdale Dec 1987

The Filiation Of The Music Illustrations In A Boethius In Milan And In The Piacenza Codice Magno, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

Proposes a common prototype from the tradition of illustrated manuscripts of Cassiodorus’s Institutiones as the explanation for the close iconographic relationship between music illustrations in a manuscript (here dated to the 11th century) of the De arithmetica and De musica of Boethius (Milan, Biblioteca Ambrosiana, MS C.128 inf.) and in the 12th-century Codice Magno (Piacenza, Biblioteca Capitolare, MS 65). Suggests that the iconography may have originated in a Carolingian scriptorium.


The Drawings And Paintings In An Ottonian Epistle-Lectionary, Elizabeth Teviotdale Sep 1985

The Drawings And Paintings In An Ottonian Epistle-Lectionary, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A consideration of the relative chronology of the drawings and paintings in among the five completed miniatures of Berlin, Staatsbibliothek Preussischer Kulturbesitz, MS theo. lat. fol 34, an epistle lectionary, presumably of the 10th century. Concludes that the originally intended iconography of the scenes in the Berlin manuscript is, in each case, distinct from that of the corresponding scene in the Codex Egberti (Trier, Stadtbibliothek, MS 24) and that the iconographic elements which peculiarly link the the Berlin manuscript to the Trier manuscript were added after the paintings were finished.
