Publisher Comments:

The British Museum has one of the finest collections of antiquities from medieval Europe. This magnificent book investigates 150 of the most important works of art, including the most famous, such as the Lewis Chessmen, the Borradaile triptych, the St Eustace head reliquary, the Royal Gold Cup, the Royal Gittern and medieval court art from the palaces of Westminster and Clarendon. This book puts these remarkable treasures into a historical context by exploring themes including dynastic art (royal and aristocratic patronage), sacred art (devotion, veneration and pilgrimage) and the art of pleasure (love, leisure and feasting). The range and scope of the British Museum's marvellous collections, combined with the British Library's manuscripts provides a stunning overview of the artistic production of this critical period in Western history.
