A Collection of Medieval Images on DiscardingImages

A rich collection of images from illuminated manuscripts is available on DiscardingImages. Although the illustrations seem odd to most modern-day viewers, they are a valid reflection of medieval European thinking and beliefs. These medieval depictions of imaginary animals, venereal diseases, and deviant human behaviour are a lot of fun but those seeking visual sources for their research will also find this site useful as all the images are fully referenced.
