Thank you!
Ravello is a town situated above the Amalfi Coast in the province of Salerno, southern Italy, with approximately 2,500 inhabitants. Ravello inspired many famous composers including Richard Wagner, Edvard Grieg, Bernstein Toscanini, – artists such as Escher, Mirò – writers such as Ruskin, Boccaccio, D H Lawrence. Built in the 11th century with support from the Rufolo family, the Duomo is a combination of Baroque and Romanesque styles. Dedicated to St. Pantaleone, the church has undergone extensive modifications and restorations over the past 900 years. The Duomo’s shining white façade dates back to the last major restoration in 1931. The Duomo’s bell tower, which dates back to the 13th century, shows Moorish and Byzantine influence.

  • @Oresta Cojocaru Moaștele în creștinism (religia catolică sau ortodoxă) pot fi rămășițe din trupul unui sfânt sau al unui fericit, icoane, îmbrăcăminte sau alte obiecte cu care a ajuns în contact sfântul venerat. In general creștinismul protestant consideră însă folosirea moaștelor a fi o formă de superstiție de aceeași natură ca și invocarea sfinților, anume o recădere în idolatrie și păgânism. Această percepție se poate zice că este congenitală în Reformă, pentru că Luther se îndepărtează (spre bătrânețe) și din acest punct de vedere de percepția catolică, pentru a se apropia de ideile intransingentului Calvin; în general pentru savanții importanți ai Reformei (precum Caspar Peucer de exemplu), credința unor culte creștine în capacitățile taumaturgice ale moaștelor, ca și invocarea sfinților, reprezentau forme de rătăcire umană induse cu scopuri malefice de către diavoli, ele fiind deci forme de satanism.

Italia Ravello2 Il Duomo

  1. 1. Ravello is a town situated above the Amalfi Coast in the province of Salerno, southern Italy, with approximately 2,500 inhabitants. Ravello inspired many famous composers including Richard Wagner, Edvard Grieg, Bernstein Toscanini, – artists such as Escher, Mirò – writers such as Ruskin, Boccaccio, D H Lawrence.  The scenic location of Ravello makes it a popular tourist desti-nation, and earned it a listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997
  2. 2. Built in the 11th century with support from the Rufolo family, the Duomo is a combination of Baroque and Romanesque styles. The Duomo’s shining white façade dates back to the last major restoration in 1931.
  3. 3. Dedicated to Saint Pantaleone, the church has undergone extensive modifications and restorations over the past 900 years. The Duomo’s bell tower, which dates back to the 13th century, shows Moorish and Byzantine influence
  4. 4. Bronze door of the Ravello Cathedral Constructed in 1179 by Barisano da Trani, the door is of special interest because fewer than two dozen bronze church doors are still extant in Italy, three of them by Trani. Unquestioned date (1179), ordered by Sergio Muscettola, Sigilgaida Pironti's husband. An inscription with the date is on the central panel on the third row of the left jamb.
  5. 5. Elijah the Prophet
  6. 6. Saint George
  7. 7. Saint Eustache
  8. 8. Fifty-four tiles, distributed on nine rows with perfect symmetry on the two doors, have various figures printed on them and point to Byzantine, Eastern, and Arab influences. They include archers, fighters, prophets, holy knights, apostles, and heraldic animals, as well as Jesus, John the Baptist, and Mary
  9. 9. Saint John the Baptist
  10. 10. Engraving of the bronze door (1898) Bronze door of the cathedral (anonymous engraver 1898)
  11. 11. The interior, with nave, two aisles and three apses, has the peculiarity of the floor being sharply inclined towards the square, for the purpose of obtaining a deeper perspective effect
  12. 12. An item of special note is the pulpit, which is supported by six spiraled columns sitting atop marble lions.
  13. 13. Pulpit of the Gospel
  14. 14. The roots of lion as a symbol can be traced back to the Old Testament and the other ancient civilizations of the Eastern Mediterranean. The remote and ancient roots of the motif have been used as an argument for the lion as a pictorial convention that was imported to Christian culture as pure form borrowed from Oriental art
  15. 15. A large proportion of the lions in Romanesque ecclesiastical art are guardians of the church, often constituting part of the architectural sculpture of the portal
  16. 16. Often the Romanesque lion can be seen supporting objects of physical or symbolical weight. Thrones have already been mentioned, other such objects are baptismal fonts, pulpits, the pillars of the church portal or even the church building itself. Art historian Frans Carlson has made a convincing argument, explaining much of the figurative Romanesque building sculpture as supporting the church: concretely bearing the church building, symbolically supporting the church as an institution
  17. 17. The pulpit was created in 1272 by Nicolo di Bartolomeo. According to medieval art historian Francesco Abbate, the beautiful artifact “recalls, after a whole century, Campania’s traditional quadrangular ambons, with supporting columns and mosaic decorations.” In the 12th century, Ravello had some 25,000 inhabitants
  18. 18. The decorative mosaics patterns inspired the interlocking patterns used by M.C. Escher, who spent time in Ravello in the 1920s and studied the church and the pulpit; Ravello was one of his favorite places
  19. 19. Across from the pulpit, to the left, is the Ambo of the Epistles that boasts two wonderful mosaics of Jonah and the whale
  20. 20. Two precious mosaics depicting Jonah and the Male decorates the side of the staircase of the 'Pulpit of the Epistles' in the Duomo of Ravello
  21. 21. the 'Pulpit of the Epistles'
  22. 22. While the museum’s collection is relatively small, it contains several significant sculptures and other works of art, most notably the famous marble bust believed by many to be Sigilgaita Rufolo, the wife of Nicola Rufolo, the 13th-century merchant who commissioned the cathedral’s pulpit. Other sources say the bust represents the Madonna or, alternatively, Joanna, the Queen of Naples.
  23. 23. Reliquary of Santa Barbara
