The Bestiary in British Library, Royal MS. 2 C. XII and its Role in Medieval Education

Visit Website
Description The process of medieval education is still very obscure to us, and indeed very little is known about how texts were used in schools. This is particular ly true of the role and function of the influentia l genre of medieval bestiaries in the process of educating novices and pupils in cathedral schools and monasterie s. The Royal collection contains one peculiar manuscript , namely Royal 2 C. XII, a bestiary of the so-called BIs Family, made in the first quarter of the 13th century, probably at the abbey of St Peter at Gloucester . The text of this bestiary was published at the end of nineteenth century, and thus Royal 2 C. XII is one of the first bestiaries published by modern scholars.
