Program Description   Rich intellectual and technical achievements distinguish the art of the Middle Ages. Throughout Europe manuscript illumination, architecture, sculpture and metal work flourished under the patronage of church and court. In this lesson students will encounter splendid liturgical objects such as a gold and porphyry altarpiece made for an 11th c. German countess, and a silver vessel for a holy relic obtained from a Byzantine emperor. Courtly items also featured in the lesson include a whimsical table fountain and Gothic style tapestries made for a chateau. Biblical subjects such as Daniel in the lion’s den—seen on a medieval column capital—help make connections between art and religion for classes studying world religions, culture and/or European history.
Program Format   1. Discuss characteristics of the Middle Ages and the prevalence of religious art.
2. View a column capital in the museum’s collection, and discuss how works of art were used to convey religious stories to a vastly illiterate population during the Middle Ages.
3. Define reliquaries (containers for precious religious objects) and brainstorm ideas for such vessels today.
4. View sacred objects including an illuminated manuscript and funerary sculptures.
5. Introduce luxury objects, which were not created for religious purposes, such as tapestries, table fountains, and lavishly decorated armor.
Objectives   1. Students will understand that the Medieval time period is rich both intellectually and spiritually, a point that can be observed through the examination of religious and secular artwork.
2. Students will understand the connection between religion and art in the Middle Ages.
3. Students will understand the various methods that artists employ to communicate effectively to a vastly illiterate public.
