Medieval Worlds of Faith

23.03.2018 - 31.12.2020

Showcased here will be medieval works of art from churches in Switzerland and on the Upper Rhine. The impressive sculptures attesting to the veneration of saints are a reminder of how society was pervaded by the Christian faith and the church and of the influence they have retained to this day.
