Illumination is the art which decorates medieval documents, including initials, marginalia, illustrations, and cadels. Technically, illumination refers only to art which is ornamented with gold or silver leaf, but the term is usually used in a broader sense. There are many broad styles, and many approaches to creating illumination.
