Art That Surrounds Us: The Basilica Interior

In our weekly video series "Art That Surrounds Us," Johan van Parys, Ph.D., our Director of Liturgy and Sacred Arts, shares information about a piece from The Basilica of Saint Mary's art collection. This week's installment is the second in a series on our beloved church building. He focuses on elements of the church interior including the ancient architectural design of a basilica, the various types of stone, the altar, the baldacchino, the entablature statues of eleven apostles and Saint Paul, and the crucifixion scene.
