The special exhibition “The Popes and the Unity of the Latin World” will open with St. Peter and examine the evolution of the papacy until the early 16th century. The most important phases of its history will be presented by exploring the impact of eminent popes.
Together with the University of Heidelberg and the Vatican, the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen in Mannheim will be a comprehensive presentation of the history of the papacy for the first time ever with this exhibition. Exceptional objects loaned from the Vatican and other museums will show the fascinating development of the papacy from its beginnings to the Renaissance.
The organizers have obtained his Eminence Kurt Cardinal Koch from Holy See and President of the Bundestag Dr. Norbert Lammert from the Federal Republic of Germany as patrons.
The exhibition will be shown in Mannheim in the spring of 2017 and at the Vatican in the winter of 2017.
