Manuscript and Charter Decoration: The Transmission of Artistic Patterns
The following contribution on the transmission of artistic patterns between manuscripts and charters observes the importance of hand kinesis performing the initials in charters (which is often overlooked by diplomatics) for studying medieval manuscript decoration. It offers a list of comparisons taken from the Archives of the Republic of Slovenia in order to prove that initial forms found in charter material are the result of interrelated influence of charter and manuscript decoration; this means that initials in charters are not merely repetitions of those found in contemporary codices, but that it is, in some cases, possible to consider influence of charters on manuscripts in terms of initial decoration.
