The Medieval Christian Church recognized the value of the real, things seen and touched that supported faith. Magnificent facades and portals marking the nexus between God and Man, therefore, enhanced cathedrals and churches. Once inside, stained glass, altars, reliquaries, paintings and sculptures allowed worshipers to look into the face of the Divine, whether Father, Son, Holy Spirit, Angels, Apostles, or the Virgin. Let Mr. Alexander, once again, guide you through the inspiring religious art of the turbulent Medieval period and hone your ability to “see the invisible,” his phrase for the efforts of Medieval artists to capture faith in stone, canvas, metal, and fabric.
