The Soul approaching the Celestial City

Medieval Miniature Acquired in Memory of Michael Camille

Michael Camille’s recent, untimely death left the world of medieval scholarship poorer. Obituaries lament the loss of an original thinker, inspiring teacher, and generous colleague.

Deguileville wrote his allegorical French epics, the Pilgrimage of Human Life and the Pilgrimage of the Soul between 1330 and 1358. Inspired by the Roman de la Rose and Dante
