A window into history: Unique exhibit puts spotlight on Popes through the centuries

2012-07-14

Through the summer, unique items like these that once belonged to Popes and the Church, are on display for the world to see. They include everything from Papal vestments to statues and priceless works of art.

The exhibit titled "I Papi della Memoria” includes hundreds of historical documents and art pieces that were gathered from the Vatican and museums from all over Italy.
The exhibit, which highlights the impact many Popes have had both in the Church and the world, is divided into different themes. They include Pope Boniface VIII who led the Church from 1294 to 1303. It was during that time that he started the first Christian Jubilee.

Also included is Pius XII, who led the Church during the Second World War.
Some of the items on display were actually stolen from the Church and eventually recovered by Italian police forces.

The documents also show the transition from the Church in Rome, to its eventual evolution throughout the world.

The exhibit is open to the public until December  2012. Organizers say it's a way to mark the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council and above all else, the exhibit is dedicated to  Benedict XVI and his seventh anniversary as Pope.
