Notes

Abstract:
British Library MS Egerton 1821 is a rare example of late medieval devotion. It opens with three black folios, each dotted with large globules of red paint. Eight later folios are colored carmine and covered in small, relief-like bleeding wounds. Four woodcuts, depicting the Madonna lactans, the arma Christi, the Man of Sorrows, and the Five Holy Wounds, have been affixed to the manuscript’s vellum folios. For this thesis, I explore Egerton 1821’s bleeding pages and integrated woodcuts, using them to open a discussion of the devotion to Christ’s abstracted, disembodied side wound. I interpret this isolated wound as baptismal and eucharistical fountain, as body, as mouth, and as passageway.
