Clio@Themis, in collaboration with the research team IUS ILLUMINATUM of the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, has decided to devote a thematic dossier, planned for the year 2021, to Illuminated legal manuscripts. The dossier, placed under the scientific coordination of Maria Alessandra Bilotta (IEM-FCSH/NOVA, principal researcher of the IUS ILLUMINATUM team) and Serge Dauchy (Centre d’histoire judiciaire, CNRS, Lille), aims to create an opportunity for dialogue between historians of illumination and legal historians and an opportunity to explore the different aspects of the decoration and illustration of the medieval legal manuscript.
Papers (20 to 25 p.), will be written in French, English, Spanish or Italian. Only illustrations that are free of copyright or for which a free publication authorization has been granted may be published (in colour) online.
