In medieval manuscripts, familiar creatures like hedgehogs and weasels appear next to equally lively depictions of unicorns and dragons. Were these creatures actual inhabitants of the earth or symbols of the frightening possibilities beyond the known world? Elizabeth Morrison, associate curator, department of manuscripts, the J. Paul Getty Museum, explores the role of fantastic animals in the Middle Ages. Complements the exhibition Medieval Beasts.
