Day 2 #stanley2018italy
More churches. Altars. Peter’s chains. Madonna & Child. Christ figure with bell & angels. Moses. Matthew (note he was the tax collector and is depicted stepping on his money bag of coins while reading scriptures). Simon Peter. Paul.
These churches are filled with beautiful art and amazing artifacts.
The Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli housed both the chains that shackled Peter and Michelangelo’s sculpture of Moses (early 1500’s). The Papal Archbasilica of St John Lateran (altar shown) had statues of the disciples & other Biblical characters of Christ’s time. The Madonna & child + the Christ figure piece were there as well.
