Cathédrale Santa Maria Assunta de Volterra
It is widely known as the Cattedrale di San Gennaroin honour of Saint Januariusthe city's patron saint. The present cathedral was commissioned by King Charles I of Anjou. Construction continued during the reign of his successor, Charles II and was completed in the early 14th century under Robert of Anjou. It was built on the foundations of two palaeo-Christian basilicaswhose traces can still be clearly seen.
Underneath the building excavations have revealed Greek and Roman artifacts. The Archbishop's Palace adjoins the cathedral. The main attraction of the interior is the Royal Chapel of the Treasure of San Gennarowith frescoes by Domenichino and Giovanni Lanfrancoaltarpieces by Domenichino, Massimo Stanzione and Jusepe Riberathe rich high altar by Francesco Solimenathe bronze railing by Cosimo Fanzago and other artworks, including a reliquary by 14th-century French masters.
Other artworks include an Assumption by Pietro Peruginocanvasses by Luca Giordano and the palaeo-Christian baptistery, with mosaics from the 4th century.
The main chapel is a restoration of the 18th century, with a Baroque relief by Pietro Bracci. The Minutolo Chapel, mentioned in Boccaccio 's Decameronhas 14th-century frescoes. The crypt is by the Lombard Tommaso Malvito. The church houses a vial of the blood of Saint Januarius which is brought out three times a year, on the first Saturday in May, on 19 September and 16 December, when the dried blood usually liquefies.
If the blood fails to liquefy, then legend has it that disaster will befall Naples. A recent hypothesis by Garlaschelli, Ramaccini, and Della Sala is that the vial contains a thixotropic gel  he also explained on the Blood Miracle of Riddles of the Dead series on National Geographic Channel. Researchers have proposed specifically a suspension of hydrated iron oxideFeO OHwhich reproduces the color and behavior of the 'blood' in the ampoule.
This was taken as a sign of the saint's favour of the pope. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Chemistry in Britain. Archived from the original on April 26, Retrieved July 28, Committee for Skeptical Inquiry.Regione ecclesiastica Calabria. Sito ufficiale. Carmelo Angelini.

The interior is spacious and bright thanks to the big polychromatic stained-glass windows decorated with figures or geometric ornamental patterns; it has an impressive plant with three aisles interrupted by three transepts and divided by three rows of marble columns with bell-shaped bases. There is a special tie between Saint Paul and the church in Reggio Calabria since the latter originated from the preaching of the Apostle, who landed in Reggio from Siracusa during his journey from Cesarea to Rome in 61 A.
According to an ancient tradition, Saint Paul's landing on the beach of Reggio along the seafront, where there is the "Cippo" was in the celebration day in honour of Diana Fascelide.
As soon as the lamp stopped burning a wonderful event happened. The stone column broke out in flames and continued burning and with its light Saint Paul's preaching lasted until the following morning.
As we know that Saint Paul's first followers were Jewish or people from the eastern countries and the Romans regarded Christians as followers of eastern cult, we could see the story from a different prospective.
It means that it is a sign of God's revelation and the effectiveness and strength of preaching the Word of God. The burning of the stone column, during Saint Paul's speech has also a symbolic meaning: it means that Saint Paul's words had the power of melting the hardness of the listeners' hearts.
Thus, taking into consideration this symbolism, we could reinterpret what the ancient tradition has passed on to us. Saint Paul is, therefore, considered the founder of the church in Reggio and father of the Christians in Calabria. The liturgical memory of Saint Paul's arrival in Reggio is on the 21st May.
The remains of the column are kept in the right side chapel in the Presbitery. On the right wall of the same chapel there is a memorial stone with a Latin inscription celebrating the wonderful event of the conversion of Regium people. Thanks to your flames Reggio embraces Christianity.
So, as the Hebrew flame led the Hebrew people to the Promised Land, you, royal column, lead us to Heaven. Built at the end of the seventeenth century by the SS. The chapel essentially dates back to the times of the Spanish Archbishop Ibanez de Villanueva who renovated the Cathedral employing Baroque forms.
Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta,, Reggio Emilia
In the late Eighteenth century it was the nicest chapel inside the great Latin cathedral Norman in origin repeatedly destroyed by Turkish invasions. The terrifying earthquakes in and on December 28 caused serious damages to the monument causing it to be reconstructed.
In the new current Cathedral the reconstruction works of the chapel endured over several decades and were interrupted by the damages provoked by a bomb in During these works, the original place of the chapel in Cornu Evangelii was not respected to prefer the end of the left transept. The chapel was finally reopened with the intervention of the Archbishop Giovanni Ferro on December 25 The chapel has a square plan with corner pillars and its architectural structure is made of groups of half columns which separate the niches housing the statues from the frames with paintings.
All the walls are covered with polychrome marbles inlaid with motifs of flowered racemes and birds. The lower parts are decorated with large drawings with wider chromatic areas, whilst the upper parts are decorated with a number of densely distributed smaller drawings.
The whole structure is reminiscent of the opulent Roman Baroque. Near the columns, great white marble flowered scrolls with little angles stand out, but the altar is decorated with a series of tarsias except for the Paliotto the altar frontal that is inlaid with racemes around the central elliptic part where the chalice with the consecrated host is clearly perceivable.
The grandiose decoration, reminiscent of the incredibly sumptuous Neapolitan marquetries, is made of Sicilian marbles the Rose marble from Taormina, the yellow Castronuovo and of other marbles varieties, primarily porphyries, tourmalines and chalcedonies. This work was performed by the marmorai marble workers from the city of Messina, a significant artistic centre in the Eighteenth century.Data: 16 Mar Mandami una notifica via email quando il commento viene approvato.

Since the 5th century, two churches had existed on the site of the present cathedral: the discovery of the burial site of Saint GeminianusModena's patron saint, led to the destruction of those churches and building of this cathedral by The initial design and direction was provided by an architect known as Lanfrancolittle else is known about this architect.
Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta (Duomo)
The Saint's remains are still exhibited in the cathedral's crypt. After Lanfranco's work, the Cathedral was embellished by Anselmo da Campione and his heirs, the so-called "Campionese-masters". The majestic rose-window was added by Anselmo in the 13th century, while the two lions supporting the entrance's columns are of Roman age, probably discovered while digging the foundations. The scholars have pointed out the splendid achievements in the creation of Adam and Evethe original sin and the story of Noah.
The side portals are also noteworthy. On the Piazza Grande, the porta regia di piazza piazza portalalso by the campionesi, and the porta dei principi princes' portaldecorated with a relief depicting episodes of the life of Saint Geminianus, by a pupil of Wiligelmus. On the northern side is the porta della pescheria fish market portalwith reliefs inspired by the cycle of the twelve months on the doorposts, and tales from the Breton Cycle of King Arthur on the archivolt.
The interior is divided into three naves. Between the central nave and the crypt is a marble parapet by Anselmo da Campione portraying the Passion of Christincluding the Last Supper. The pulpit is by Arrigo da Campionedecorated with small terracotta statues. Notable also the wood crucifix from the 14th century. The Duomo houses also the nativity scenes by two great Modenese artistis: Antonio Begarelli 's one and, in the crypt, Guido Mazzoni 's onealso known as the Madonna della Pappa "Madonna of the Pap".
The Torre della Ghirlandina is annexed to the church. The funeral of the late famed tenor Luciano Pavarottia native of Modena, was held in the cathedral. The cathedral's north portal, known as the Porta della Pescheria, features high relief carvings of secular scenes on the marble archivolt and lintel. The carvings on the archivolt are notable for depicting a very early Arthurian scene. The lintel carvings include a crossbirds, animals, and a man riding a hippocamp.
The archivolt carving, dubbed the "Modena Archivolt" in Arthurian circles, includes inscriptions identifying the figures as Arthurian characters and sets them in a scene which has various correspondences in Arthurian literature. It is possibly the earliest monumental sculpture to feature the Arthurian legend. The sculptor has been dubbed the "Arthur Master", and critics note that while his inspiration outshines his skill he faithfully captures realistic details in architecture and dress.
The date of the piece and the artist's source have been debated vigorously. Roger Sherman Loomis argued for a date at the beginning of the 12th century, which would place the carving decades earlier than the earliest written Arthurian romances on the continent. However, other evidence points to a date no earlier thanand the later work of Jacques Stiennon and Rita Lejeune suggests a date between and At the center of the Modena Archivolt image is a castle defended by two towers, inside of which are two figures identified as "Mardoc" and "Winlogee".
The left tower is defended by a pickaxe-wielding man named "Burmaltus", who faces off against Artus de Bretania King ArthurIsdernus most likely Yderand another unnamed knight, who all bear their lances against him.
On the other side, the knight "Carrado" spars with "Galvagin" likely Gawainwhile "Che" Kay and "Galvariun" perhaps Galeshin approach with their lances at their shoulders. The Abduction of Guinevere is a very popular and ancient element of the Arthurian legend, first appearing in written form in Caradoc of Llancarfan 's midth-century Life of Gildas.
This version describes Arthur's queen as being kidnapped by King Melwas of the Summer Country and taken to Glastonbury ; Arthur only recovers her with the help of Saint Gildas. Later versions call the kidnapper Meleagant and name the queen's lover Lancelotrather than Arthur himself, as her rescuer. Interesting in the context of the Modena Archivolt is the shadowy early tradition in which the character known as Yder, Ider, or some variant was the queen's lover and rescuer.
This tradition is mostly lost but is mentioned in Thomas of Britain 's Tristan and survives, in greatly manipulated form, in other romances, the most important of which is Yder. One such romance, Durmart le Galoisincludes a scene in which Ydier participates in a rescue of Guinevere, and rides unarmed, as Isdernus does on the Modena Archivolt. The knight Galvagin, the only one with a decorated shield, likely corresponds to Gawain, the hero of many romances.
Further correspondences with material in the Vulgate also occur: notably, the Vulgate includes a scene in which Arthur, his nephew Galeshin, and his seneshal Kay attack Carados of the Dolorous Tower; the names of Arthur's companions are similar to the "Che" and "Galvariun" who approach Gawain on the Modena Archivolt. Loomis argued that the Archivolt scene corresponds to the Vulgate version of Guinevere's abduction, and that in an early version Gawain may have been the rescuer rather than Lancelot.The earliest records date back to Cathedral was rebuilt and designed by Ettore Baldanza, in Nneoclassical style after the earthquake of The interior has a Latin cross, it is majestic, with three aisles divided by massive columns.
