Theophilus: On Divers Arts

paperbound, 216 pages, index, 45 plates and diagrams

This translation of the medieval manuscript most essential to an understanding of pre-Renaissance art and technology is the result of a collaboration between a Latin scholar and a metallurgist. Their fully annotated edition presents complete bibliographic and biographic data, with 18 illustrations of surviving work in the manner of Theophilus, including examples by the Benedictine monk Roger of Helmarshausen, who appears to be the true author using a Byzantine pseudonym. Theophilus teaches, with rigorous attention to fact but also with great reverence, the making of pigments for fresco painting, the manufacture of glue, the technique of gold leaf on parchment (the first recorded European reference to true paper), how to blow glass and design stained glass windows, fashion gold and silver challices, make a pipe organ and church bells. Precies instruction on enamelling, chasing, repouss‚ niello, and beaded wire work prove Theophilus first-hand knowledge of his craft.
