MUSEUM GIFT SHOP

A bestiary, or bestiarum vocabulum, (the designation of animals) is a compendium of beasts. Originating in the ancient world, bestiaries were made popular in the Middle Ages in illustrated volumes that described various animals and even rocks. The natural history and illustration of each beast was usually accompanied by a moral lesson.
