Description

First and luxurious facsimile edition of this fantastic codex, made in 1992 and already sold out.

Manuscript written by the cleric Pedro and illustrated by Martino in 1086. The author, who possibly was born in 730 and died towards 798, was probably abbot of the monastery of San Martin de Liebana Osinda chaplain, woman Silo (king of Asturias 775-783) and who spiritually modeled the Spain of the late eighth century.

The Blessed art not only embody the state, but also religious and cultural Spanish first millennium. The characteristic features of these centuries, with its very particular way of life, refined, full of terror, magic visions and fears, all found in the pages of these works.

The remark is made in the Blessed Apocalypse of St. John, it contains a remote from the evangelist concept of that Holy prophetic guidance: more than predicting the future offers us the terror of punishment.

Beatus of Burgo de Osma, as recorded in various parts of the codex was written by the cleric Pedro and illustrated by Martino in 1086. There architectures with floral decorations that are Hellenistic. Other, Romanesque and Carolingian, lacking traditional indigenous. The illuminator has a classic artist, a contemporary Western aesthetics. It has connection with the first Beatus of the National Library, in the Escorial and the San Millan. The color is brilliant, with intense, red, yellow or green backgrounds. We emphasize perhaps the most beautiful of all the thumbnails of riding Salvador, accompanied by other saints. The drawing is exquisite, with an elegance of line that swells and forms curls.
