blue

the color of medieval text

Forums: 

In medieval text there seems to be a frequent use of red and blue lettering. Does anyone recreating medieval texts (or imitating them in advertising, book cover design, etc.) have a standard Pantone color that best represents these? Absolute precision isn't necessary; I'm just trying to invoke the (admittedly large and diverse) era through the color of the text.

(By the way, there is a [[http://www.amazon.com/PANTONE-SMART-19-3933X-Swatch-Medieval/dp/B004O7C1B6|Pantone "medieval blue"]] but it is darker than the typical blue used in medieval texts, which is more like [[http://www.cmrs.ucla.edu/links/plate_links.html|this]].)
