The “Wiener Dioskurides” belongs to the most important pharmacological/zoological manuscript collection of ancient times. By drawing on various sources, this codex, made to order for the Byzantine Princess Juliana Anika in a Monastery of the empire capital Constantinople, unites the entire botanical and pharmaceutical knowledge of its times. Not only does it contain the most noteworthy of texts but moreover, the rich book decoration has made the Wiener Dioskurides famous world-wide.
In a surprisingly true-to-nature and detail rich reproduction of almost 500 plants and animals, this codex displays an extraordinary level of ancient illustrative art which is highly praised in contemporary literary fields. Due to their age, both volumes together hold a high degree of artistic and historical meaning as well as serving as an invaluable source of knowledge, making the Dioskurides one of the most valuable manuscripts in the world.
