Lunch and Learn: The Sensual Middle Ages

No reservations required.
Bring your light lunch!

Did you know that the incorporation of the five senses was an important aspect of medieval art? Touch, taste, smell, hearing and sight were important in gaining knowledge of the sensible world and interpreting it according to Christian doctrine. Bring your light lunch and join the Walters’ Martina Bagnoli, Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Medieval Art, as she explores the sensory dimension of medieval art and ritual.
