Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in France
The Treasury of the Sainte-Chapelle

The Treasury of the Sainte-Chapelle
PARIS  •  Musée du Louvre  •  1 June - 27 August 2001
The objects in the treasury of the Ste Chapelle were assembled by King Louis IX (otherwise known as St Louis) from 1239 onwards around important relics relative to Christ's Passion from the Imperial treasury of Constantinople, which fell to the Crusaders of the Fourth Crusade in 1204. It thus unites both Byzantine and medieval works which are regarded as some of the greatest masterpieces of the Middle Ages.
