The Brooks Museum of Art has opened a new gallery, the Brooks League Medieval Treasury, that will display works of fine and decorative art made in Europe during the Middle Ages. Since most surviving works of art of that era were for the use of the Christian Church, the gallery space is designed to resemble the single bay of an aisle or crypt of a church dome in the Romanesque style dominant in much of Europe between 1050 and 1200. The new space is funded by a gift from the Brooks League, a support group of the museum.
