dc.description.abstractThis thesis presents and analyses a corpus of some seventy manuscripts which can be identified at the Dominican monastery of Saint-Louis de Poissy between its foundation in 1304 and its dissolution in 1792. The majority were owned by the nuns and most are illuminated; a small number come from the library of the friars resident at the house. By means of a parallel assessment of surviving documentation the manuscripts are considered throughout in the context of the needs of a well-endowed royal foundation intended for noble women, and in terms of monastic and Dominican history and changing requirements. The fate of the volumes is traced form the time of their production through successive alterations and refurbishments (or damage) in order to assess how the nuns acquired their handwritten books, kept them relevant both textually and artistically, or disposed of them when no longer wanted.en_US
