Assembled in the 15th century, the Getty Museum's manuscript of The Romance of Gillion de Trazegnies is one of the finest works from the golden era of Flemish illumination. Part travelogue, part romance, it is the tale of a nobleman who journeys to Jerusalem on pilgrimage, is imprisoned in Egypt, and rises to the command of the Sultan's armies, while mistakenly marrying both a Christian and then a Muslim woman. This sumptuous edition offers a complete reproduction of Lieven van Lathem's ornate illustrations and selections from the text, along with essays that explore the manuscript's vibrant cultural and historical contexts.
