Aalieyah Creach

a Lot of the illuminated manuscripts made during Early Medieval times have a very similar painting style when comparing both art styles. When you look at classical and byzantine artwork you can tell that a lot of it seems to portray a glow of religion. However when it comes to the early medieval manuscripts, although it looks as if it is religious, it actually looks as if it is portraying a higher form of human. Not someone like god but a human that is very important or connected with spirituality.
