Medieval Star Wars

A couple of years ago, we showed you an illumination of Yoda found in a medieval manuscript. Then there was another one. It turns out that those aren't the only depictions of Star Wars characters in medieval literature. After all, it was a long time ago, even if it was in a galaxy far, far away. Here you see Princess Leia in her buns wielding two light sabers, from the 1320 CE French manuscript St. Omer Book of Hours. There have also been images found of a Jawa robe, Bib Fortuna in the nude, and several depictions of Chewbacca, Ewoks, and other alien races. See them at the British Library’s Medieval Manuscripts blog. -via Everlasting Blort
