Germanic National Museum to Display Medieval Collection

Teri Centner reports that the Germanic National Museum in Nurnburg, Germany will be opening the doors of its famed medieval collection for the first time in many years.

The collection has been in storage for the past ten years so that its exhibition space could be completely renovated. The collection includes over 500 objects from all medieval periods up to 1500 and features bronzes, stained glass, wood and stone sculpture, and tapestries. The greatest treasure of the collection, however, is the Codex Aureus of Echternach, an illuminated manuscript from the 11th century.
