Hildesheim, Germany, was a leading centre of art between 1000 and 1250, when outstanding precious works, such as the larger-than-life size Ringelheim Crucifix, illuminated manuscripts lavishly bound in jewelled covers, and a monumental bronze baptismal font, were commissioned for its churches and cathedral. In 1985, UNESCO designated St. Mary`s Cathedral and St. Michael`s Church in Hildesheim a world cultural heritage site, recognizing them as monuments of medieval art with exceptionally rich treasures. Despite its significance, Hildesheim`s incomparable collection of medieval church furnishings is little known outside of Germany. This book provides the first comprehensive examination in English of the city`s treasures, its leading role in the art of the Middle Ages, and its churches` history of commissioning and collecting outstanding objects. Highlighting fifty precious and rare works, this book beautifully illustrates some of the great masterpieces of medieval church art. ISBN:9780300196993
