Beginning February 1, 2020, the St. Francis Missal—a legendary 12th-century manuscript and relic of touch of St. Francis of Assisi—will go on view at Walters Art Museum for the first time in 40 years.  The St. Francis Missal is an intimate exhibition that, along with the eponymous text, features approximately 23 objects, including paintings, ivories, ceramics, and documentation of the Missal’s recent two-year conservation funded by the Mellon Foundation.
