    medieval pavilons of the book


    The context is:

    Although I couldn't know the story of the scribe or the illuminator, I tried to give a sense of each of them by explaining the details of their crafts and what medieval pavilions of the book were like and where such artisans fitted into the social milieu.

    Pavilions here are tents? why pavilions of the book? a tent that sold books? but it's "book" not "books", so confused. Anyone can explain??

    By the way, fit into the socila milieu here = did those artisans famous? rich, poor, etc., in their social environment at that time?

    Re: medieval pavilons of the book

    #1 The author is referring to his/her descriptions of mediaeval pavilions [ tents] used in a book he/she has written. I think "the" has been omitted.

    #2 How artisans [craftsmen who were usually of a low or relatively low social status] fit into the social structure of the period.
