Monks’ scribbled complaints in illuminated manuscripts
Haha, who would have thought that medieval monks would literally scribble their grumblings on the very pages of the illuminated manuscripts they slaved over? Taken from an old issue of Lapham’s Quarterly, these strangely sound just like us complaining about work, especially the one that says ‘For Christ’s sake give me a drink’. Still, isn’t it vandalism?
