Quiz: Can You Match These 10 Illuminated Manuscripts With Their Names?

Can you match these 10 pictures of iconic illuminated manuscripts to their name? 

You don't have to have an Art History major to match these famous medieval illuminated manuscripts. They are some of the most well-known, especially among SCA scribes. From Kells to Crusades, these works are instantly recognizable. Can you match them all?

To the left side are pictures from ten Western European illuminated manuscripts. To this post's right are their unmatched names. All you have to do is match the proper name to its image. 

Yes, I'm sneaky. I have not always used the most popular or well-known images. Also, there are more manuscript names than pictures. But all names are matchable because some manuscripts are known by more than one name.

If you are curious, stumped, or in a hurry to find the answer click on the word "link" in the caption below the image. It will take you to a Wikipedia page about the manuscript.

Have fun.
