This catalogue accompanies the Object of Devotion exhibition at the North Carolina Museum of Art. During the late Middle Ages, English craftsmen carved finely decorated images from alabaster for display in churches, homes, and private chapels. With essays by leading scholars, this fully illustrated guide offers a glimpse into the spiritual lives, hopes, fears, and religious aspirations of medieval English Christians and sheds light on issues of spirituality, devotion, and culture beyond the English Channel.
