The Worksop Bestiary is a 12th-century illuminated manuscript containing a bestiary and other medieval Latin texts on natural history, largely compiled from the Physiologus, the Imago mundi of Honorius Augustodunensis, the Etymologiae of St. Isidore of Seville, and an extract from the Book of Genesis. It also contains the text of a sermon on Saint Joseph, falsely ascribed to Saint Augustine. (continued on English Wikipedia)
