The Bern Physiologus is a 9th-century illuminated copy of the Latin translation of the Physiologus (a didactic text written or compiled in Greek by an unknown author, in Alexandria).
It was probably produced at Reims. It is believed to be a copy of a 5th-century manuscript. Many of its miniatures are set, unframed, into the text block, which was a characteristic of late-antique manuscripts. It is one of the oldest extant illustrated copies of the Physiologus.
