Friends of the Mediaeval Studies Society Lecture: Masterpieces of Mediaeval Goldsmiths' Work

Friends of the Mediaeval Studies Society (FMSS) Lecture

Join Corey Keeble, ROM Curator, World Cultures, for a illustrated presentation about some of the most magnificent surviving examples of European goldsmithing from the pre-Romanesque to Late Gothic eras. Included are magnificent masterpieces in gold, silver, brass and enamel of both secular and liturgical origin. Among the most visually stunning items are imperial and royal coronation regalia, drinking horns, altarpieces, chalices, reliquaries and monstrances from Austria, France, Bohemia and Germany. In addition to the treasures of various national museums in Europe, including the Moscow Kremlin, are major items from various museums in the U.S. and from the Lee Collection in the ROM. This is the ultimate feel-good presentation for anyone thrilled by the combination of artistic invention and brilliant technical execution in the most luxurious of media!
