Chiara Valle

Chiara Valle, a doctoral candidate at Johns Hopkins University, is currently working on a dissertation with the working title “Woven Words in the Lindisfarne Gospels,” which examines the meaning of the depictions and imitations of textiles in medieval manuscripts. Her research looks at early medieval works of art and texts to understand why parchment can mimic fabric and other materials such as gems and metals.
