The Religious Change & Print exhibition features many items of Italian origin, including books printed in Rome and Florence, as well as a large, hand-colored map of Venice. We invite you to learn more regarding these and other Italian items on this special tour of the exhibition which will lead you through Italian printing, manuscript, and religious history as presented in this exhibition.

This tour is part of Religious Change, 1450 - 1700, a multidisciplinary project exploring how religion and print made the medieval world modern. The project is generously supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
