The Utrecht Archives

Animated medieval tales


The Utrecht Archives, or Het Utrechts Archief, had something to celebrate, for their sizable collection of medieval texts had been entirely digitized!

For the occasion, they wanted to highlight three stories from these documents. One about Utrecht being granted to its first bishop Willibrord, a second one about the craftsmen that toiled to built the Dom church, and a final one about the church obtaining a holy arm bone. The result is a colourful video with art inspired by medieval manuscripts.
