  The Pierpont Morgan Library,
New York. MS M.240, f. 8

A scribe is one of the historical figures depicted in a circa 1230 manuscript from a moralized bible, part of the Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts Collection of the Pierpont Morgan Library, New York, N.Y.

The full folio (143/4 x 101/4 inches) shows "Blanche of Castile and King Louis IX of France and Author Dictating to a Scribe." Medieval scribes and their manuscripts are the focus of research by University of Maine Professor of English Linne Mooney.
