Abstract

From the thirteenth century to early modern times, Venetian church interiors gleamed with brilliant gold and silver altarpieces and frontals. This article brings an initial analysis of these artifacts (and of the painted altarpieces that concealed them on minor feast days) into dialogue with broader art historical debates about the materiality and the performativity of medieval artworks.
