Come and Discover:
the history of the devotion to the virgin Mary in Rome, from frescos, to basilicas to icons.
"From the very beginning, Christians have held the Virgin Mary in special reverence as the greatest of all the Saints, “incomparably more exalted than the angels”, in the words of the Byzantine liturgy.
This is especially evident in the capital of the Catholic world, Rome, which among its countless works that celebrate Her dignity as the Mother of God, boasts possession of the oldest painting of Her in existence, and the oldest church in the world dedicated to Her.
Join us for this exploration of some of the Eternal City’s most beautiful artistic and architectural monuments to Mary, and some of the history of how She has been represented over the centuries."
