Why do medieval illustrated manuscripts captivate us so? Probably it is because they contain both brilliant images and familiar words. In Paleolithic times the only communication was via paintings and carvings. Since writing appeared on the planet, the verbal and the visual have struggled for supremacy. If a picture is worth a thousand words, why do some religions have invisible gods or forbid images? History shows that reading/writing occurred along with patriarchy, and replaced right-brained “feminine” concepts including goddesses. But -- the image has returned to prominence, in photography, film, TV, videos and computers. So where are we now?
