A painted manuscript unique in its own kind
What we have today, the torso alone, gives us an idea of the original beauty of this splendid, elegant manuscript: Coloured pen and ink drawings on every page accompany the scenes within the text, with figures and symbolism that convey the manuscript with a unique position among German court epic illumination.
