Exhibit of manuscripts truly is character-driven

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reviews an exhibit of illuminated manuscripts at the Cleveland Museum of Art that demonstrates "the development of Christian imagery during the Middle Ages and early Renaissance."

The exhibit, which will be on display through October 2, 2005, "offer[s] a rare view of an artistic progression that ranges from the painstaking work of anonymous monks who illustrated the Scriptures in the monasteries of Europe (often for their own use) to the lavish creations of celebrated artists who worked for wealthy patrons."
