Click to enlargeThe Caporali Missal

By Stephen Fliegel, Curator of Medieval Art, Cleveland Museum of Art with contributions by Dilys Blum, Silvia Braconi, Virginia Brilliant, Donal Cooper and Maria Rita Silvestrelli

The Caporali Missal, a sumptuous and important Renaissance missal--or service book for the priest at the altar--was illuminated by the Caporali brothers, Bartolomeo and Giacepo, for the Franciscan community in the hillside town of Montone, near Perugia, in 1469. This exhibition catalog celebrates this important manuscript, recently acquired by the Cleveland Museum of Art, with exquisite reproductions that bring the illuminated pages to life. Additional works by the Caporali brothers and relevant art from the museum's and other collections elucidate the history, style, content, function, and authorship of the missal. Illustrations of a chalice and a paten, a chasuble, and a processional cross enhance the religious and aesthetic context of the manuscript. A series of essays by eminent scholars examine the influence of Florentine artists on the Caporali brothers and explore the spiritual life of the Franciscan community and the history of the friary at Montone. An exhibition of the same name will be on view at the Cleveland Museum of Art from February 17 through July 7, 2013
