Codex Vyssegradensis
The VYšEHRAD CODEX ( Latin
Latin
Codex Vyssegradensis), also known as the Coronation Gospels of King Vratislaus, is a late 11th-century illuminated Romanesque Gospel Book , which is considered the most important and most valuable manuscript kept in Bohemia (Czech Republic ). Its extremely rich iconography and its visual components rank it among the most precious illuminated manuscripts of the second half of the 11th century in Europe. It was probably made at the order of Czech diplomats to honour an anniversary of the Czech King Vratislav 's coronation which took place in 1085 (Vratislav was the first king of Bohemia , which was previously a dukedom). The codex is of Danubian provenance, and closely related to three other surviving manuscripts – two of them now in Poland and one in the Prague

Chapter Library. They probably originated in the circle of the scriptorium at the Monastery of St

Isaiah

were written by one man, Isaiah—possibly in two periods between 740 BCE and c. 686 BCE, separated by approximately 15 years—and includes dramatic prophetic declarations of Cyrus the Great in the Bible , acting to restore the nation of Israel

Byzantine Art
BYZANTINE ART is the name for the artistic products of the Eastern Roman (Byzantine ) Empire, as well as the nations and states that inherited culturally from the empire. Though the empire itself emerged from Rome's decline and lasted until the Fall of Constantinople in 1453, many Eastern Orthodox states in Eastern Europe, as well as to some degree the Muslim states of the eastern Mediterranean , preserved many aspects of the empire's culture and art for centuries afterward. A number of states contemporary with the Byzantine Empire were culturally influenced by it, without actually being part of it (the " Byzantine commonwealth ")

Manuscript Illumination
An ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT is a manuscript in which the text is supplemented with such decoration as initials , borders (marginalia ) and miniature illustrations . In the strictest definition, the term refers only to manuscripts decorated with gold or silver; but in both common usage and modern scholarship, the term refers to any decorated or illustrated manuscript from Western traditions. Comparable Far Eastern and Mesoamerican works are described as painted. Islamic manuscripts may be referred to as illuminated, illustrated or painted, though using essentially the same techniques as Western works. This article covers the technical, social and economic history of the subject; for an art-historical account, see miniature . The earliest surviving substantive illuminated manuscripts are from the period 400 to 600, produced in the Kingdom of the Ostrogoths

Iconography
ICONOGRAPHY, as a branch of art history , studies the identification, description, and the interpretation of the content of images: the subjects depicted, the particular compositions and details used to do so, and other elements that are distinct from artistic style . The word _iconography_ comes from the Greek εἰκών ("image") and γράφειν ("to write"). A secondary meaning (based on a non-standard translation of the Greek and Russian equivalent terms) is the production of religious images, called "icons", in the Byzantine and Orthodox Christian tradition; see Icon . In art history, "an iconography" may also mean a particular depiction of a subject in terms of the content of the image, such as the number of figures used, their placing and gestures
