Saints, Relics, and Images: The Art of Medieval Devotion

April 17-May 13, 2018

Burton D. Morgan Gallery

The student-curated exhibition Saints, Relics, and Images is part of Associate Professor of Art History Kara Morrow’s Medieval Art seminar.

About the exhibition:

Throughout the Middle Ages, saints served as exemplars of faith. From their position in the Court of Heaven, they interacted with the corporal world, their power made manifest in their bodily remains and associated possessions tucked into parish altars and revealed in distant pilgrimage destinations. Sumptuous reliquaries touted the power of saintly relics. Medieval Christians believed that achieving spiritual illumination was furthered through the commissioning and use of artistic material splendor. As such, luminous glass, precious metals, and ornate surfaces transported worshipers in their devotions enabling interaction with the holy dead.

Saints, Relics, and Images investigates how saints served as exemplars of faith throughout the Middle Ages. The exhibition will explore how artistic material supported spiritual illumination in Medieval Christian beliefs.
