Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hildesheim, Germany, was a leading center of art between 1000 and 1250, when outstanding precious works, such as the larger-than-life size Ringelheim Crucifix, illuminated manuscripts lavishly bound in jeweled covers, and a monumental bronze baptismal font, were commissioned for its churches and cathedral. In 1985, UNESCO designated St. Maryand#8217;s Cathedral and St. Michaeland#8217;s Church in Hildesheim a world cultural heritage site, recognizing them as monuments of medieval art with exceptionally rich treasures.

and#160;

Despite its significance, Hildesheimand#8217;s incomparable collection of medieval church furnishings is little known outside of Germany. This book provides the first comprehensive examination in English of the cityand#8217;s treasures, its leading role in the art of the Middle Ages, and its churchesand#8217; history of commissioning and collecting outstanding objects. Highlighting fifty precious and rare works, this book beautifully illustrates some of the great masterpieces of medieval church art.
