Books, Miniatures, Writing and Supports
(Timeline Project)

Year 384 – Eusebius Sophronius Hieronymus (St. Jerome) writes scornfully of the “wealthy Christian women whose books are written in gold on purple vellum, and clothed with gems.” (It’s a good thing he wasn’t around for the Carolingians.)

This post is part of an ongoing series on books, miniatures, writing and supports since the year 1. Please consider it a kick-start for your own private timeline and a springboard for further research. See my blog for the rest of the series.
