Manuscripts, for example, illustrate the quirks of medieval calendars and their charming illustrations. The origin of the timeline is explored through medieval genealogical scrolls. A final section of the show reveals the fascinating geography of the unending time of the Hereafter. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=280326 92nd Street Y 92nd Street Y
