Catalogue of an exhibition in honor of the Sesquicentenary of the Diocese of Cleveland, Ohio. Through their patronage & the gifts accorded them by emperors, kings, & other potentates, the almost 2,000-year succession of popes has inspired an extraordinary range of art made in the service of the sacred & the spiritual. Many of these works were commissioned from the most exalted artists & craftsmen of their time. The subsequent association of these works with the papacy has only added to their luster. This highly focused exhibition presents more than 30 of the most compelling sacred works in the papal collection. Includes 32 full-color plates.
