Modern devotion 

Before the advent of the printing press, Bibles and other books were copied and illuminated (or illustrated) by hand. Practiced by educated monks, and later by secular artists, the European tradition of handwritten, illuminated Bibles was a beautiful and storied craft that all but vanished in the 15th century.
