Decorative impressions are made to adhere the leaf VIII. Paints[ edit ] While the use of gold is by far one of the most captivating features of illuminated manuscripts, the bold use of varying colors provided multiple layers of dimension to the illumination.

On the other hand, since the eleventh century Jews did employ occasionally and in the late Middle Ages more extensively, the vernacular languages of their environments, transcribing them in Hebrew characters. In the Early Medieval period the text and illumination were often done by the same people, normally monks, but by the High Middle Ages the roles were typically separated, except for routine initials and flourishes, and by at least the 14th century there were secular workshops producing manuscripts, and by the beginning of the 15th century these were producing most of the best work, and were commissioned even by monasteries.

      Demand for manuscripts grew to an extent that Monastic libraries began to employ secular scribes and illuminators. The Bodleian purchased the fragments as early as and many of them are very old and valuable. From a religious perspective, "the diverse colors wherewith the book is illustrated, not unworthily represent the multiple grace of heavenly wisdom. If no scriptorium was available, then "separate little rooms were assigned to book copying; they were situated in such a way that each scribe had to himself a window open to the cloister walk". I do not have any cuneiform tablets, but I do have some ostraka inscriptions on stone or pottery flakessealings stamped impressions in clay and inscriptions on other materials.
