The Role of the Scroll

An Illustrated Introduction to Scrolls in the Middle Ages

Thomas Forrest Kelly

By exploring why people in the Middle Ages continued to make and use scrolls long after the invention of the book, Professor Kelly reveals the remarkable – and enduring – versatility of the scroll. In chapters illustrated with over 60 outstanding examples, he explains why they were ideal for keeping records, for maps and histories, for performers’ lines or music, as private amulets and charms, and as ritual documents.
