Including illustrations of some 100 manuscript illuminations, reliquaries, architectural elements, ivory carvings and other works produced from the 6th to the 16th century, this catalogue presents an interdisciplinary study of the significance of collective memory in medieval culture and the role of images in preserving and transforming visions of the past. Seven scholarly essays address such topics as the methods by which medieval artists evoked the Classical world in their works, the importance of relics in the commemoration of Christian saints, the visual interpretation of Arthurian legends, and the impact of Gothic models on 19th-century New England architecture.
