This exhibit will be at Brooklyn’s Borough Hall until January 14

“Frate Francesco – Friar Francis: signs, words, images is a landmark exhibition in its presentation of numerous 12th and 13th-century documents, papal bulls, and manuscripts in New York, the first time these precious objects will travel outside Italy. The exhibit is a revised version of the one which first appeared at the Camera dei Deputati, Rome, and brings to light numerous artifacts of exceptional historical and artistic value. This presentation heralds the visit of Pope Francis, a devoted Franciscan, to New York in 2015, and its venue at the United Nations is of further significance, as Saint Francis continues to inspire compassion, dialogue, and humility.”
