Quatre endroits où vous pouvez trouver des statues des apôtres à Rome et dans les environs

An apostle is a special witness of Jesus Christ who bears witness to His divinity and His resurrection from the dead.
Ils ont poursuivi la mission de Jésus-Christ en proclamant le message du salut, tout en rencontrant de nombreuses persécutions aux conséquences mortelles.
We can find several statues of the apostles around Rome and other cities in the surrounding area. Here are some options:
1. Dôme d'Orvieto
In 2019, the statues of the apostles were returned to their original location in the Umbrian cathedral after a full 122 years. (In past years, they were on display at a branch of the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, the former Church of Sant’Agostino).
2. San Giovanni in Laterano
La basilique Saint-Jean est la plus ancienne d'Occident et aussi la première basilique désignée par le pape.
Dès l'entrée, les choses les plus frappantes sont ces grandes sculptures des douze apôtres qui bordent le couloir central.
3. Place Saint-Pierre
Jesus, John the Baptist, and 11 of the apostles are placed above the facade. An interesting detail is the lack of one apostle in the upper balustrade of the famous Basilica, that of the Apostle Peter. In fact, a separate statue in the churchyard is dedicated to him.
4. The Rome Visitors’ Center
In the visitors’ center, we find the presence of the statue of the Risen Christ, along with the twelve apostles, minus Judas Iscariot, who has Paul in his place.
The light and peace that emanates from the room are unparalleled, a strong feeling of warmth touches every person who visits it.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is built on the foundation of apostles and prophets.
And to this day, we have the presence of these great authorities in the restored Church of Jesus Christ with Russell M. Nelson as president, guide, seer, revelator, and prophet to all of its members throughout the world.
