|Arcibasilica Papale di San |
Giovanni in Laterano
The Arcibasilica Papale di San Giovanni in Laterano is not just a church, it’s Rome’s cathedral and the site forms part of the most ancient church in the world – home to the popes before the move to the Vatican.
Those statues – all fifteen of them – depict Jesus, flanked by John the Baptist and John the Evangelist. The other statues represent influential theologians – Fathers of the Church. At seven metres tall, the statues impress and dominate the skyline.
