More from Life Magazine: The New Cardinals

The Life Magazine photos are proving to be a real treasure trove of images of Vatican life, ceremonial and protocol from the pre-conciliar days. You've seen the pictures posted here and here and now John Sonnen over at Orbis Catholicus has spotted some more in relation to the ceremonies surrounding new Princes of the Church (i.e. the Cardinals).

One gets the sense their archives are full of many treasures yet unseen. Thanks to John for finding these.


Apparently these also appeared on an interesting site, The Far Sight which specifically looks for photos like these. For those interested in these things, it is likely a site to check into.
