The Morgan Library and Museum is pleased to announce their upcoming exhibition ‘Imperial Splendor: The Art of the Book in the Holy Roman Empire, 800–1500’ which begins 15 October 2021 to 23 January 2022.
This book argues that the images devised to accompany medieval commentaries, whether on the Bible or on classical texts, made claims to authority, even inspiration, that at times were even more forceful than those made by the texts themselves. Paradoxically, it was in the context of commentaries that modern conceptions of independent authorship first were forged.
