Charlemagne gave many of his scholars the job of copying all the
old manuscripts into Latin by hand. This preserved much knowledge.
All books in the middle ages were written by hand. All
books were written to glorify religion. Each page was beautifully
designed. Some pages were "illuminated" with a cover of gold. These
books are known as illuminated
The art of illuminating manuscripts continued for
many hundreds of years.
