    Description:

    Bologna’s votive and civic basilica is dedicated to Bologna’s patron saint (St. Petronius, eighth bishop of Bologna, reigned 431-450).

    Description:

    In 1673-1674 Bernini designed and executed the tabernacle and adoring angels in bronze for the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament in St Peter’s. The form of the tabernacle derives from the Tempietto di San Pietro in Montorio of Bramante, done in miniature. The wrought-iron grille around the chapel with the arms of Pope Urban VIII was designed by Francesco Borromini.

It was regarded as the mother church of all Christendom, as is made clear by the inscription omnium urbis et orbis ecclesiarum mater et caput, which appears twice on the huge bases of the columns framing the central doorway to the present building. The church was probably begun after the …
