Sine Nomine, the ensemble-in-residence of the Pontifical Institute for Mediaeval Studies, is pleased to present:

De animalibus: A medieval musical bestiary

The medieval bestiary was a compendium of natural history, legend, and pious allegory. Beginning with the seventh-century Physiologus of Isidore of Seville, these anthologies described animals familiar, exotic, and imaginary, their appearance, habits, symbolism, and theological significance; many were decorated with remarkable miniatures. The wealth of moral and mystical interpretation in these collections informed generations of poets and musicians. Our final programme of the season offers a tantalizing introduction to the place of the bestiary in medieval culture.
