Timed to coincide with the 1000th anniversary of the Basel cathedral’s consecration, which was celebrated in the fall of 1019 in the presence of Emperor Henry II, the exhibition Gold & Glory. Gifts for Eternity unfurls a panorama of cultural history that explores the reign and culture of the last Ottonian ruler from a variety of perspectives. Precious artifacts on loan from private and public collections in Europe and the United States illustrate the central role that Henry II and his “golden gifts” played for Basel and the region.
