Treasures of Faith
Masterpieces from the Museum of Decorative Arts in Berlin, on display in the Bode Museum
The most famous testaments to medieval church art from the National Museums' Museum of Decorative Arts, Berlin, have been brought together in a show hosted in the Bode Museum. The impetus for the exhibition is both positive and distinctly practical in nature, as extensive renovation work is currently being undertaken at the Berlin Museum of Decorative Arts.
The centrepiece of this exhibition is formed by key works from the Welfenschatz (which once made up the church treasure of the Collegiate Church of Saint Blaise in Braunschweig, also known as Brunswick). Important incunabula and illustrated manuscripts from the Berlin State Library and selected works from the host museum's own Sculpture Collection complete the spectacular exhibition.
Awaiting the visitor are numerous works representing various high-points in European cultural history, ranging from Early Middleages to the late Gothic period. Thanks to the striking juxtapositions of the works, visitors are afforded new and often surprising perspectives on these testaments of deep faith and the exceptional artistic craftsmanship.
An exhibition organized by the Museum of Decorative Arts in conjunction with the Sculpture Collection and Museum of Byzantine Art and the Dom-Museum in Hildesheim.
