Treasures of heaven : saints, relics, and devotion in medieval Europe by Martina Bagnoli( Book )

26 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing together an array of treasured objects from collections throughout Europe and the United States, this beautifully illustrated volume examines the medieval cult of relics- the physical remains of holy men and women, and things associated with them. Relics connected Christian faithful with sacred places and people who died as martyrs of their faith. Believed to contain the same power that had animated saints during their lifetime, relics bridged the gap between heaven and earth. To signal their sacred nature, medieval artists fashioned special containers for relics in precious materials and encrusted them with gems. Enshrined in alters of churches and used in the liturgy as well as in public rituals, relics functioned as objects of public and private devotion, carried home from pilgrimages to the Holy Land and sites throughout Europe or worn on the body as protective amulets enclosed in rings or pendants. In essays and catalogue entries, an international group of scholars traces the making of reliquaries from the earliest days of Christianity to the apogee of the practice in the sixteenth century, exploring how medieval artists invented new ways to express the power of sacred remains and the role that relics played in the development of the visual arts in both Eastern Christianity (Byzantium) and Western Christendom. This book also tracks the fate of relics and reliquaries in the wake of the Reformation, anti-clerical movements, and the French Revolution. This book sheds fascinating new light on some 140 extraordinary and rare reliquaries and related objects, including precious metalwork, paintings, sculptures, and illuminated manuscripts, from sources ranging from the Lateran Palace in Rome to European cathedral treasuries and small parish churches. -- from Book Jacket
A feast for the senses : art and experience in medieval Europe by Md.) Walters Art Gallery (Baltimore( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The late medieval world was marked by a culture of refinement and sophistication. The period's media of choice--paintings, manuscripts, prints, tapestries, embroideries, ivory sculpture, metalwork, and enamels--speak volumes about the pleasures of sensory engagement. This sumptuous new book brings together sacred and secular art to reveal the shared intellectual culture that governed perception in Europe in the 13th through the 16th centuries. The essays explore these themes through representations of religious practices, royal rituals, feasts and celebrations, music, and literature"--Prové de l'editor

Senses. Art and experience in medieval Europe by Christina Normore( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The late medieval world was marked by a culture of refinement and sophistication. The period's media of choice-paintings, manuscripts, prints, tapestries, embroideries, ivory sculpture, metalwork, and enamels-speak volumes about the pleasures of sensory engagement. Art objects were touched, smelled, and heard, as well as seen. This sumptuous new book brings together sacred and secular art to reveal the shared intellectual culture that governed perception in Europe in the 13th through the 16th centuries. A focused exploration of the performative and multifaceted nature of medieval art underscores its direct appeal to the senses, revealing the rich experiential world that informed its interpretation. Nine essays explore these themes through representations of religious practices, royal rituals, feasts and celebrations, music, and literature. Beautifully designed and produced, Senses contributes significantly to an emerging field in the history of art and showcases approximately 130 objects, each accompanied by a full description, provenance, and bibliography.00Exhibition: Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, USA (16.10.2016-08.01.2017); Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota, USA (04.02-30.04-2017)
