Manuscripts and their illuminations played a central role in fostering a nd expressing the devotion of Christian faithful during the Middle Ages. As the word of God\, biblical phrases were introduced by elaborate initial le tters\; narrative stories about Christ or the saints were pictured in detai led miniatures\; and borders brimming with fantastic scenes focused attenti on on important texts. Drawn entirely from the Getty Museum's collection\, this exhibition looks at manuscripts that not only helped medieval viewers celebrate Christian beliefs but also—with their lavish decoration in precio us pigments and gold—served as material testaments to the piety of their ow ners.
