> > of biblical heroine _Judith with the Head of Holofernes_, a portrait of
> > Catherine de' Medici on a medal, or Elizabeth I. The Gallery Guide, a
> > digital equivalent of the brochure you carry though the museum, provides

information on

> > the show; events on the University of Michigan campus during the theme
