"For those who have long been fascinated by the remarkable mid-fourteenth-century picture book known as the Velislav Bible, the volume edited by Lenka Panu.ková has been eagerly awaited; for medievalists not acquainted with this fascinating manuscript, this volume will serve as a welcome introduction. [...] I’m delighted to have this book and recommend it to all interested in medieval manuscript illustration, apocalyptic and biblical studies, and didactic and homiletic practices."
- Richard K. Emmerson, The Medieval Review, 21.02.08 (2021)
"The contributors to this volume bring to light, once again, the famous Czech/Bohemian picture Bible, the Velislav Bible, created sometime in the first half of the fourteenth century. Older research had already recognized the great value of this Bible, and the authors of the collected articles stand on their shoulders and try to offer new perspectives... This is a well edited volume, and much credit goes both to the editor and the contributors, as well as to the publishing house."
