A Rabbi in the Vatican: Exploring Jewish Influences on the Sistine Chapel

Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)

With its famous Michelangelo ceiling, the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican is the crowning glory of Catholicism. But did you know the chapel was modeled after King Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem? Or that its biblical frescoes reflect Jewish undercurrents of Renaissance thought? Or that the ornate flooring has kabbalistic overtones?

Weaving together Torah and Talmud, Midrash and Mysticism, your experienced and enthusiastic guide will show you fascinating hidden messages in the paintings. These still have meaning for us today in the rift between religion and reason.
