I am Peter and on this rock, Jesus founded his Church. The Peter undecided and a traitor to his master is far away. The sculptor at the end of the C16th , influenced by Italian art, has magnificently rendered the power and solidity of the «Prince of the Apostles» as they called me : big, strong, the powerful face framed by a curly beard. An important council met at Trent to restore order. The Catholic Counter-Reformation and classicism in art had started. The Wars of Religion had ended and the risks of a division in Christendom had dimmed. I advance, incarnation of the power of the Popes in Rome, sure and magnanimous, amply draped, holding in my right hand the Gospels, and in the left the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Jesus gave them to and said, to you I give the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall also be bound in heaven. Whatever you loose on earth shall also be loosed in heaven.’

MR. H. 17-10-1908
