Abstract

This study presents a precious illuminated Bible, dating to the late 13<sup>th</sup> century, actually in the Cleveland Museum of Art: the contribution shows that this significant manuscript is stylistically close to a group of illuminated Bibles from Catalonia and French Midi. On the basis of its stylistic and palaeographic analysis, the Bible is attributable to southern France. This Bible must be considered therefore as a concrete example of an original creative process based on geographical mobility of manuscripts, exchanges of models and interactions between clients, owners and illuminators (often from different backgrounds) in the geographical context of the Mediterranean arc, between southern France and Catalonia.
