Three of Boston’s most celebrated institutions—Harvard University’s Houghton Library, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and the McMullen Museum of Art—are teaming up to mount a shared exhibition of Medieval illuminated manuscripts. The show, which opens in September, will bring together approximately 250 works and will be held across all three institutions. Additional loans will come from a host of local museums, including the Boston Athenaeum.
