Medieval art is beautiful, expansive and covers a wide range of styles and cultures. Throughout the medieval and renaissance period, religious and secular art is prominent and can be found displayed within churches, cathedrals, as well as in homes and manors. Glass, metal, fabric and paint are some of the mediums used to create a vast collection of art. It is not uncommon to see valuable materials, such as gold, used for objects in churches, personal jewelry, backgrounds for mosaics, and applied as gold leaf in manuscripts.
