"In Moses the Egyptian, Herbert Broderick analyzes the iconography of Moses in the famous illuminated eleventh-century manuscript known as the Illustrated Old English Hexateuch. A translation into Old English of the first six books of the Bible, the manuscript contains over 390 images, of which 127 depict Moses with a variety of distinctive visual attributes. Broderick presents a compelling thesis that these motifs, in particular the image of the horned Moses, have a Hellenistic Egyptian origin. He argues that the visual construct of Moses in the Old English Hexateuch may have been based on a Late Antique, no longer extant, prototype influenced by works of Hellenistic Egyptian Jewish exegetes, who ascribed to Moses the characteristics of an Egyptian-Hellenistic king, military commander, priest, prophet, and scribe. These Jewish writings were utilized in turn by early Christian apologists such as Clement of Alexandria and Eusebius of Caesarea. Broderick's analysis of this Moses imagery ranges widely across religious divides, art-historical religious themes, and classical and early Jewish and Christian sources. Herbert Broderick is one of the foremost historians in the field of Anglo-Saxon art, with a primary focus on Old Testament iconography. Readers with interests in the history of medieval manuscript illustration, art history, and early Jewish and Christian apologetics will find much of interest in this profusely illustrated study"-- Provided by publisher

"Illuminators and Patrons in Fourteenth-Century England is a richly illustrated study of one of the treasures of the British Library, MS Egerton 3277, a psalter and book of hours made for Humphrey de Bohun (d. 1373), the vastly wealthy earl of Hereford, Essex, and Northampton, who employed two or more illuminators to work on the manuscript in his own castle at Pleshey, Essex. The interaction between the Bohun patron and the Bohun artists is a major focus of the book. Along with a detailed commentary on the manuscript's more than three hundred pictorial subjects from the books of Kings of the Old Testament, the Gospel of Luke, and the Acts of the Apostles, the book includes twelve essays linking the British Library manuscript with others illustrated by the same artists for members of the Bohun family in the second half of the fourteenth century. The book is accompanied by a DVD reproducing every page in images that can be enlarged by the viewer to show the smallest details of the illustrations."--Publisher's website
