Marginalia are drawings (often very frivolous!) that medieval monks left in the margins of manuscripts. Thanks to this little liberty, there is now such a phenomenon as “medieval memes.”

Marginalia were often entertaining as hell, and full of humor, and obscene as well, so you can sign off on them with a modern commentary. The Instagram account @medievalmarginalia absorbs such drawings, forming a base of memetic medieval miniatures. As the saying goes, you won’t see anything better today.
