Nine papers delivered at one of the nine annual symposia at Michigan State University discuss medieval book production, 14th- century manuscripts, aspects of iconography, and patronage. A Worcestershire girdlebook, the soul's conveyance to the afterlife, secular objects in Netherlandish painting, the seven deadly sins, and nuns and patrons and artists, are among the topics.
