Museo Diocesano


Published on:  2019-01-10 10:27:19


The seventeenth-century Episcopal Seminary of Bari houses on the first floor the Diocesan Museum and contains a precious historical and cultural heritage that is told through the artistic and devotional artifacts on display. The route is divided into five sections: lapidary, picture gallery, treasure, sacred vestments and fine rolls of the Exultets. The hall that houses the sculptural findings reconstructs the long architectural history of the Bari Cathedral. The art gallery includes a collection of works from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, including the fourteenth-century icon of the Madonna degli Alemanni, the Madonna with Child of the ZT, the altarpiece of altar of the Risen Christ by Andrea Bordone, the Adoration of the Magi by Corrado Giaquinto. In the Sala del Tesoro, precious liturgical furnishings can be admired such as the Stauroteca with a double cross-piece in silver, datable to the twelfth century. The halls of the Exultet and the Benedzionale represent the heart of the museum itinerary, with liturgical scrolls of the eleventh century, typical of the Pasquale Beneventana liturgy widespread in the Middle Ages in southern Italy.
