This photograph shows banners advertising the ‘Love and Devotions: from Persia and beyond’ exhibition at the State Library of Victoria. The banners form an image taken from a Persian manuscript. The exhibition features Persian manuscripts from the thirteenth to eighteenth centuries, along with manuscripts from Europe, Ottoman Turkey, and Mughal India. The majority of manuscripts on display are from the Bodleian Libraries of the University of Oxford.

Such exhibitions are a rare opportunity for Australians to interact with real artefacts from the medieval period. Along with modern appropriations they often help to form people’s perceptions of the medieval era.
