EDITORS COMMENTS
This print depicts the biblical events of Ascension and Pentecost, dating back to the 13th century. Created in France as part of La Somme Le Roy, this illustration showcases the exquisite artistry found in illuminated manuscripts. The image is featured in George F Warner's book "Illuminated Manuscripts in the British Museum" published in London in 1899. In this scene, we witness a momentous occasion as Jesus Christ ascends into heaven after his resurrection. A group of disciples gazes up at him with awe and reverence while birds soar through the sky above them. Among these birds is a dove, symbolizing the Holy Spirit descending upon humanity during Pentecost. The vibrant colors used by the unknown creator bring life to this medieval masterpiece, emphasizing its religious significance. This artwork serves as a visual representation of Christianity's core beliefs and teachings surrounding salvation and divine intervention. Sir George Frederic Warner meticulously curated this collection of miniatures, borders, and initials from various sources to provide an invaluable resource for scholars and enthusiasts alike. Through his efforts, we are able to appreciate not only the historical importance but also the artistic brilliance captured within each page. This print from Heritage Images allows us to delve into history and explore profound spiritual moments that continue to inspire faith centuries later.
