“Mary in Miniature: Books of Hours in the Marian Library’s Collection”

“Mary in Miniature: Books of Hours in the Marian Library’s Collection” This Library exhibit has been recreated as an online exhibit. Books of Hours – devotional books centered on a series of prayers to the Virgin Mary – were the best-selling book in Europe for over 300 years, from 1250 to 1550. This exhibit highlights Books of Hours in the Marian Library’s collection – their art, their text and their unique (and sometimes unusual) features. Books of Hours, also called horae, not only contain artistic masterpieces in miniature, but also provide a window into the religious and social lives and customs of their medieval readers To connect to the exhibit, visit http://udayton.edu/marianlibrary.
