The Morgan Library will present several rare examples of medieval treasure bindings—gold-, silver- and jewel-encrusted book covers created for important manuscripts. Both the ninth-century Lindau Gospels, which features a hammered-gold crucifixion scene offset by intricate gemstone motifs, and the 13th-century Berthold Sacramentary, considered by many to be the most luxurious German manuscript of its time, are included in the exhibition.
