2009-11-24

It’s walls are an open book that narrate the story of the Bible in the most visual way possible up to now.

It’s the Sistine Chapel, whose frescoes are featured in the book, “The Painted Word.”

Michelangelo, Perugino and Boticelli were able to depict complex theological concepts, now featured in this book, with the stroke of a brush. That’s why John Paul II called the Sistine Chapel a sanctuary for theology.
