Medieval monsters: horrors, aliens, miracles
Monsters have captivated the imagination of medieval men and women just as they continue to captivate us today. Drawing on a magnificent collection of illustrated manuscripts from the library and museum of Morgan, this major exhibition explores the complex social role of monsters in the Middle Ages.

"Medieval monsters“will guide visitors through three sections based on the ways monsters functioned in medieval societies. Being busy in decorative, entertaining or contemplative environments, these fantastic creatures were supposed to inspire their viewers with a sense of wonder and awe.
