Painted Pulpits: The Depiction of Pulpits in South Italian Exultet Rolls

Onderzoeksoutput: ChapterAcademicpeer review


The scenes in which a deacon stands at the centre of a brightly painted pulpit singing the Exultet from an unfurled scroll are amongst the most widely reproduced medieval illuminations depicting the interior of a church and its furnishings. This brief chapter attempts a first survey these images from Southern and Central Italy, and asks what variations of form are in evidence, how the pulpit is placed and used within the scenes, and explores the relationship between the illumination and the accompanying text, and between the images and extant contemporary pulpits from Southern Italy, and concludes with a consideration of the function of the pulpit images in the manuscripts.
