Abstract

This dissertation analyses manuscript production networks operating in late-thirteenth- and early-fourteenth-century Umbria. It focuses on liturgical Franciscan manuscripts decorated by the ateliers of the Maestro di Deruta-Salerno (active c. 1280) and Maestro Venturella di Pietro (active c. 1317), including the Codex Sancti Paschalis (now owned by the Australian Province of the Order of Friars Minor, and kept in the State Library of Victoria). This micro-history of Franciscan liturgical activity reassesses methodologies pertinent to manuscript production networks and aims to stimulate reflection on both the construction of communal identity through ritual activity and historiographic trends regarding this process.
