The Caporali Missal: A Masterpiece of Renaissance Illumination

Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 2:00 p.m.

Stephen Fliegel, Curator of Medieval Art, examines a little-known manuscript missal produced for the Franciscan community of Montone in Italy’s Umbria region in 1469. The subject of a current exhibition, the missal is examined for its impressive decoration by the Caporali brothers as well as the context of its use as the service book for the priest at the altar.

This lecture is part of the Caporali Lecture Series, complementing the exhibition The Caporali Missal: A Masterpiece of Renaissance Illumination, on view February 17 – June 2, 2013. Co-sponsored by Cleveland State University.
