Hidden Treasures--Illuminated Manuscripts from Midwestern Collections
an exhibition that brings together rarely seen ornate handmade books from
university libraries, museums, and private collections in seven states.
Illuminated manuscripts were produced in Western Europe during the Middle
Ages and early modern period, and the exhibition includes examples of
bibles, liturgical manuscripts, devotional books for the laity’s private
use, and volumes containing literary, historical, and legal texts.
Approximately forty manuscripts and single leaves, dating from the ninth to
sixteenth centuries, are being loaned for Hidden Treasures, which is on view
December 18, 2010–February 27, 2011 at the Chazen Museum.
