Description

In the year we are celebrating the centenary of the creation of the first sculpture of Our Lady of Fatima, this exhibition reunites the most beautiful statues of the Virgin Mary, in a reflection on the relation between art and devotion. This exhibition will be held at St. Augustine Social Hall, at the lower floor of the Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity, between 9:00 am and 6:00 pm daily, and runs until 15 October 2020.

The title of the new exhibition has its origin in the description of Our Lady made by Lúcia de Jesus to Fr. Manuel Nunes Formigão and Fr. Manuel Marques dos Santos, on July 8 1924, in which the seer, answering the question about “how was the Lady dressed”, says “She was dressed in white”. This interrogation, as well as the idea of a world-scale icon that the first sculpture of Our Lady of Fatima would become, open the preamble of the exhibition, as well as the other seven sections that constitute it.

Admission to the exhibition is free.
