walters-feast-for-sense-pixJoin us at the lodge (523 N Charles St, 2nd floor above the Grimaldi Gallery) for a half hour talk tracing the changing attitudes in Christianity from its earliest days through the late Medieval period, towards the relationship between the spiritual and the physical, the soul and the body.

We then walk half a block to the Walters Art Museum to take a self-guided tour of the exhibit, “A Feast for the Senses: Art and Experience in Medieval Europe.” We can discuss our reactions in the cafe area afterwards. The exhibit features rare tapestries, gold statues, illuminated manuscripts and other objects of art and devotion, that give us a glimpse into the medieval understanding of the sacred and the profane.

This program is free, open to all. The Walters has free admission to the museum and the exhibit.
