Plan your visit









In a unique display of manuscripts and antiquities from the Museum’s collections, this exhibition explores medieval responses to the ancient world. For more than a millennium following the fall of Rome (476 A.D.), classical culture was passed on through manuscripts as medieval scribes and artists adapted and embellished narratives of ancient rulers and mythical heroes for inclusion in Christian texts and illuminations. Although the rediscovery of ancient Greek and Roman art and literature is associated with the Renaissance, antiquity was never forgotten during the Middle Ages.
