This exhibition presented precious objects in a variety of media from the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, an institution renowned for its rich collections in these areas.

The exhibition encompasses both religious and secular works spanning the 4th through 14th centuries in the Catholic West and the 4th through 18th centuries in the Byzantine and Orthodox East, evoking times and places—as diverse as Coptic Egypt, medieval France, Byzantine Greece, Orthodox Russia and Christian Ethiopia—where faith played an integral role in every-day life.

Realms of Faith was organized by the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, exclusively for the Frist Art Museum.
