Tune In: Discovering the lost Sistine Chapel manuscripts

The only remaining codices from the Sacristy of the Sistine Chapel are making their first and only U.S. appearance at SMU’s Meadows Museum. The Lost Manuscripts from the Sistine Chapel: An Epic Journey from Rome to Toledo will be on exhibit through April 23, 2011.

Featuring 40 codices that range in date from the 11th to the 18th century, the collection represents some of the finest illuminations ever discovered, and follows the trajectory of an exciting and significant time at the Vatican and Sistine Chapel.
