Overview

The magnificent bronze doors of Hildesheim Cathedral, the ivory, gold, enameled, and bejeweled book covers made to contain superbly illuminated manuscripts, the startling reliquary caskets made in the shape of the part of the body supposed to be contained within them-these and other sacred objects were contained within church treasuries and cloisters in the early Middle Ages in Europe.
