About

The world of unicorns, monsters, beasts and beautiful maidens was vividly represented in bestiaries, books and tapestry depicting this marvelous parallel universe. Children will learn that Medieval art was most often a privilege of the elite and a form of entertainment. In this lesson we will also study how religion and pagan believes organically co-existed in that period. Will children agree to re-think definition of "Dark Ages" as a result of this lesson? Book a lesson for your child and find out.
