Morgan Library Tour
Magnificent Gems
Friday, October 6
Morgan Library
225 Madison Ave, Manhattan

This year’s Morgan Library visit will be on Friday, October 6th, at 6pm, for the Magnificent Gems: Medieval Treasure Bindings show. A docent will be leading the tour. The Morgan’s website explains:

Among the exhibition highlights will be the ninth-century Lindau Gospels, one of the two finest Carolingian jeweled bindings in the world, and the thirteenth-century Berthold Sacramentary, the most luxurious German manuscript of its time.

While the Morgan is waiving its tour fee for us, they are charging us $11 a person this time. The Medieval Club can cover costs for graduate students, but otherwise, we are asking you please to reimburse the club when you arrive for the tour. A check made out to the New York Medieval Club would be best.

Write to me to the President of the NY Medieval Club, Karl Steel, at ksteel@brooklyn.cuny.edu, if you are planning to attend, ideally by September 12th, as the Morgan is asking the Medieval Club to place a deposit on the tour by then.
