Illuminated Manuscripts – Growing & harvesting flowers, nuts, herbs, fruits & vegetables in 1400s

Tacuinum Sanitatis, ca. 1400 Pomegranates

The Tacuinum Sanitatis is a lavishly illustrated medieval handbook on health largely focusing on the growing & preparation of food, based on the Taqwim al‑sihha تقويم الصحة ("Maintenance of Health"), an 11th-century Arab medical treatise by Ibn Butlan of Baghdad. These manuscripts were first commissioned by northern Italian nobility during the last decades of the 14th century. Four handsomely illustrated complete late 14th-century manuscripts of the Taccuinum, all produced in Lombardy, survive, in Vienna, Paris, Liège & Rome, as well as scattered illustrations from others. The illuminated manuscripts here come from different copies of the Tacuinum Sanitatis, from between 1370-1400. You will notice the varying illustrators’s styles in these examples.
