Viator is the journal of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the University of California-Los Angeles. This special issue presents articles on manuscript text and image, textual studies, Medieval England, Italian history and humanism, and the Richard and Mary Rouse Collection of Medieval manuscripts at the university. The topics include Laurent de Premierfait and the visualization of antiquity, linking ancient Troy and Medieval France in illuminations of an early copy of the Roman de Troier, the transmission of North African texts to Europe in Late Antiquity, Dan Michel of Northgate and his books, and the provenance of a dismembered Italian Book of Hours illuminated by the master of the Brussels initials. There is no index. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co.
