The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is marking the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci with a painting by the artist that will draw crowds but also pay solemn tribute to the larger-than-life Italian Renaissance painter, architect and inventor.
One year after the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s record-breaking exhibit on the Catholic imagination, the landmark museum is set to display a Vatican owned masterpiece beginning next week.
A 100-page document in an unmarked manuscript dating back to about 800 at the Cologne Cathedral Library, which had been digitized in 2002, is a copy of the earliest known biblical commentary written in Latin. The rediscovered Latin commentary from Fortunatianus now replaces St. Jerome’s Vulgate as the earliest known Latin commentary of the Gospels.
