A Collection of Medieval Marginalia that Have Been Turned Into Memes

Marginalia are drawings (often very frivolous!) that medieval monks left in the margins of manuscripts. Thanks to this little liberty, there is now such a phenomenon as “medieval memes.”

Marginalia were often entertaining as hell, and full of humor, and obscene as well, so you can sign off on them with a modern commentary. The Instagram account @medievalmarginalia absorbs such drawings, forming a base of memetic medieval miniatures. As the saying goes, you won’t see anything better today.
