People Getting Stabbed In Medieval Art Who Just Don't Give a Damn [View all]

A collection of stabbed subjects from Medieval Manuscripts and Mounted Paintings.

I love the Manuscript illustrations because... Manuscripts! It was a laborious process to create a medieval manuscript. The materials used took time to create and assemble- from ink preparation to the production of Vellum and parchment which were stacked and folded into "gatherings". Then came the process of scoring and creating ruling lines to guide the scribe so writing is even. Illumination followed, which embellished the work in gold or silver and then finally, the binding process. It took years of meticulous training to become a Master Scribe: students went through an apprenticeship where they would observe and absorbed their Master's technique.

We typically think of devout Monks practicing this craft in isolation in Monasteries, however, Nuns also produced manuscripts With the mushrooming of medieval economies (stimulated by the rise of The Merchant Class and the establishment of Towns) City Centres like Paris, Oxford and Florence became a hub for Craft Guilds and their artisans and the book trade became highly specialized - with Scribes, Artists, Binders, Publishers.

Given the energy, skills, and materials involved, the creativity of Scribes and Medieval painters fascinates since symbolism was more important in artistic representation then than "realism".

These saints/figures are ready to meet their maker. And they're chill about the whole thing.

"this is fine"



welp



It's just a flesh wound.



Stabbed through the chest and skull. Cool







God grant me the serenity to accept the stabbing I cannot change;
and the wisdom to know I'm gonna get stabbed anyway.
