Promotional Information

During the Middle Ages, embellishment was applied to buildings, objects, and bodies, and ornament was abundant and opulent. Colorful paintings, mosaics, and tapestries covered walls; stained glass glittered in windows; gems and enamel sparkled on objects exquisitely crafted of gold and silver. Members of the upper class adorned themselves in elegant attire, the clergy donned sumptuous ecclesiastical vestments, and elaborate armor was the ultimate military mode.
