Middle Ages featured at the Cleveland Museum of Art

In addition to its famous medieval Armour Court and manuscript collections, the Cleveland Museum of Art will host Treasures of Heaven: Saints, Relics, and Devotion in Medieval Europe now through January 17, 2011.

The exhibition explores how artists of the Middle Ages revered saints and their relics, and looks at the importance of relics in medieval life.
