Turin Exhibition of Christ Exhibits Antique Vestment Work

One of our readers, an American priest in Italy, recently visited the museum of La Venaria Reale in Torino, Italy, where, for the occasion of the exposition of the Shroud of Turin, they are hosting a corresponding exhibition which is focused on images of Christ.

Their exhibition includes various forms of sacred and liturgical art, particularly paintings and sculpture, from the earliest ages of Christendom to the baroque era. It also includes some wonderful antique vestments which our priestly reader sent our way, and which I wished to share with you today.
