For those who consider museum-going a secular religion, here’s a meta-experience: “Treasures of Heaven: Saints, Relics and Devotion in Medieval Europe” opens Feb. 13 at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore and features 133 objects linked to medieval Europe’s pilgrims – the ones who worshiped saints’ remains the way we worship the “Mona Lisa.” Co-organized by the Walters in conjunction with the British Museum and the Cleveland Museum of Art (the exhibition’s other stops), this show promises to delight any art lover.
