Dans la peau d'un moine copiste

During the school holidays, come and discover heritage while having fun. Use your senses to learn about architecture, painting, sculpture or history.

During a workshop, become a copyist monk from the Middle Ages and learn to use the tools of the scribe, the illuminator or the gilder.
Discover the illuminated case from the Land of Art and History of Riom Limagne and Volcans to talk about this art which developed in the Middle Ages.
Decoration executed by hand which adorns a manuscript (from the Latin manus “hands” and scribere “to write”), illumination gradually disappears with the appearance of printing.
In Billom, the painter who created the decoration of the Rosary chapel in the Saint-Cerneuf church was undoubtedly inspired by the master illuminators.
You are now ready to handle “the pen” of the monks: the calamus.
In collaboration with the Land of Art and History of Riom -Limagne and Volcans.
