Summary
Facsimile of an illuminated codex created between 1109 and 1112 at the Cathedral of Oviedo, Spain, under the patronage of Bishop Don Pelayo. The codex, which collected the texts of documents from Asturian kings that granted certain privileges to the See of Oviedo, was illustrated with miniatures that are considered to be among the finest examples of Spanish Romanesque manuscript illumination. The book provides much insight into medieval life and early Spain. Its' 17 large format illuminations--the artist is known simply as the Master of the Book of Testaments--play a key role in the history of the miniature, as no cartulary anywhere in Europe had ever been illustrated in this way. The codex is currently kept at the Catedral Metropolitana of Oviedo. Accompanied by a commentary volume, in Spanish, on the palaeography and history of the manuscript, as well as the transcription and translation of the texts
