Armor from the Middle Ages

Mentor Public Library patrons will have an opportunity to see and touch armor worn by knights from the European Middle Ages and the High Renaissance during the library’s Art-to-Go: Cool Knights program. The program will be held Wednesday, June 27 at the Main Library James R. Garfield room at 7 p.m. Museum staff and trained volunteers of the Cleveland Museum of Art will explain the technological development and artistry of the armor. Participants will be able to examine pieces of armor and a crossbow bolt from the Middle Ages and the 16th century. “The presentation will also address some of the misconceptions of armor, for example, that a suit of armor was heavy or difficult to wear,” said MPL Collection Manager Barb Hauer. “Patrons will be able to actually try on an armored gauntlet for first-hand experience of wearing armor. We are able to reach back through the years, across oceans, and almost touch the kings and princes who wore these suits of armor.” Registration is required. Call (440) 255-8811, ext. 215 to register for the program or online by visiting the Mentor Public Library website: www.mentorpl.org.
