Saints, Relics, and Images: The Art of Medieval Devotion
(Burton D. Morgan Gallery)
April 17 – May 13

The College of Wooster Art Museum (CWAM) will present Saints, Relics, and Images: The Art of Medieval Devotion April 17 through May 13 in The Burton D. Morgan Gallery of Ebert Art Center. 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 worshipper in their devotions enabling interaction with the holy dead.

The student-curated exhibition Saints, Relics, and Images is part of associate professor of art history Kara Morrow’s Medieval Art seminar.

The CWAM is open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 p.m. All receptions, lectures, exhibitions, and performances are free and open to the public.
