"Weird and Wonderful Creatures of the Medieval Bestiary" When it came to fabulous animals like the unicorn, dragon or griffin, it is debatable whether medieval people believed that such creatures really existed. Some undoubtedly did (as some still do today). As for fabulous creature mentioned in the Bible, (as unicorns and dragons are), the problem became more difficult; if the Bible is acknowledged to be the true word of God, any animal it mentions must surely exist.
With the help of illustrations from "The Bestiary" Agnes Peterkin reveals the wonderful range of fabulous creatures. What they can do, where they live and how to protect yourself from them?
