Abstract: During the medieval period beekeeping practices, clothing and implements were depicted in many manuscript illuminations, constituting a body of information which, however, has not yet been fully appreciated. Many observations can be drawn on the beekeepers’ figures, within a broad chronological (11th to mid-14th century), geographical (Constantinople, South Italy, present-day England, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy) and cultural framework (Byzantium, the West).

Abstrakcijny: V době srědnjevěčja pčelarske praktiky, oblěčenje i pribory byli pokazyvani na mnogyh ilustracijah rųkopisov, itak tvorili grupų informacij ktore, jednakože, ne byli pòlno cěnjene.  Iz figur pčelarev mogųt byti izvedene mnoge nove observacije v širokyh sektorah: hronologičnom (od 11-ogo do poloviny 14-ogo stolěťja), geografičnom (Konstantinopolj, Južna Italija, tutdenna Anglija, Francija, Niderlandy, Němcija, Italija) i kulturalnom (Bizancium, Zapad).

Keywords: medieval beekeepers, manuscript illuminations, Byzantium–South Italy–West (central Europe), protection, clothing, implements
