An unprecedented journey in discovery of Saint Apollinaris in the collections of the Archiepiscopal Museum of Ravenna
The Archiepiscopal Museum of Ravenna constitutes an important cultural institution of the city. Its origins are deeply connected with the history of the ancient Basilica of Ursus which was rebuilt in the seventeen thirties.
Apostles are constantly presentin 5th and 6th century A.D. monuments in Ravenna. They are portrayed either full-length or half-length inside precious clipei. Identified, at times, by their name, they might either have a halo behind the head or a crown of glory in the hand.
