Below are some of the photo we were able to take.
A little about the exhibit:
See more than 200 works of art and historically significant objects that together form a great mosaic of the history of the Roman Catholic Church and its impact on art, history, and culture. From the sights and sounds of the grand Basilica to a touchable cast of Saint John Paul II’s hand, embark on a journey through the ages of artistic expression and religious iconography.
It also provides insight into Emperor Constantine’s declaration in 312 A.D. that Christianity would be legal. As a result, Roman Christians no longer had to practice their faith in secret, and Christian art began to flourish.
