Organizational scheme for illuminated manuscript images[edit]

Over the next several months, I plan on uploading a large number of illuminated manuscript images. I forsee that merely categorizing them unde Category:Illuminated manuscripts will make finding these images difficult at best. I intend, therefore to subdivide and sort them in the following manner. Ideally, when this scheme is fully implemented, images will only actually appear in the categories for individual manuscripts.

Category:Illuminated manuscripts

Category:Manuscripts by location
Category:British Library manuscripts
Category:Lindisfarne Gospels
Category:Vespasian Psalter
Category:British Library, Additional MS 5111
Category:Trinity College Dublin manuscripts
Category:Book of Kells
Category:Book of Durrow
Category:Manuscritps by type
Category:Gospel Books
Category:Lindisfarne Gospels
Category:Book of Kells
Category:Book of Durrow
Category:British Library, Additional MS 5111
Category:Psalters
Category:Vespasian Psalter
Category:Manuscripts by century
Category:6th century manuscripts
Category:British Library, Additional MS 5111
Category:7th century manuscripts
Category:Book of Durrow
Category:8th century manuscripts
Category:Lindisfarne Gospels
Category:Vespasian Psalter
Category:9th century manuscripts
Category:Book of Kells
Category:12th century manuscripts
Category:British Library, Additional MS 5111
Category:Manuscripts by period or school
Category:Insular manuscripts
Category:Lindisfarne Gospels
Category:Vespasian Psalter
Category:Book of Kells
Category:Book of Durrow
Category:Byzantine manuscripts
Category:British Library, Additional MS 5111

etc.


Note that British Library, Additional MS 5111 is a 12th century manuscript that has had 6th century parts bound with it, hence its appearance in both centuries.
