In the Middle Ages, monstrous races were thought to inhabit the edges of the Christian world, and there was debate about whether such beings—hair-covered or elephant-snouted, headless or stork-necked—enjoyed God's love.

The exhibition will explore how images of monsters in the European Middle Ages embodied fears, expressed ideologies and exercised the medieval imagination. The exhibition will include rare illuminated manuscript pages and stained glass from the collections of Augustana College, Rock Island; Saint Louis Art Museum; Olin Library Manuscripts Collection, Washington University in St. Louis, as well as several other public and private collections.
