Medieval Bestiary

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites, Uncategorized

Welcome to the Medieval Bestiary, a site devoted to showing you what animals they thought existed in the Middle Ages.

Navigation can be done through the links on the main page. They are: Introduction, Contents, Search this Site, Help with this Site, Contact, Chimaera: bestiary blog, Beasts, Manuscripts, Bibliography, Encyclopedia, Digital Text Library, and Articles. That’s a lot of stuff to check out, so let me point you towards the interesting stuff.

Beasts – this is what we are here to check out, so click on Beasts to get started. Once on the Beasts page, I would recommend clicking the Alphabetic link. This will take you to the beasts in alphabetical order. Then you can either scroll down the page to look at what you want, or choose one of the animals listed and then navigate with the arrows through the bestiary.

Each entry in the Bestiary has navigation tools at both the top and bottom of the page. Each page will have an image of the creature (if one was available), its name in Latin and other names if more were known, and as you scroll down the page you’ll learn all sorts of interesting information about the creature, as well as sources in chronological order of those who had written of its existence.

Not only will you learn a lot about the ancient world, but you’ll also discover very interesting depictions of animals. I think that this site is worth browsing just to see the images from the Middle Ages of the animals. If that is the case, and you would just like to look at the images then click Gallery on the navigation strip of the Bestiary. Then use the up and down arrows on the page to scroll through them.

This is a very interesting look into ages past. Check it out today!
