Reviewed July 26, 2012

The old church of San Pietro and attached buildings have been reordered to provide a museum complex, with excellent lighting and air conditioning. The contents of the old Diocesan Museum have been moved here. There are some very unusual exhibits including very early 10th Century sculpture in a primitive style and a few religious paintings showing influence of the Renaissance.A somewhat odd item, to modern minds, is reliquary which is said to hold the foreskin of the infant Jesus. It is easy to scoff, but that would be to misunderstand the medieval mind. It is because of pilgrims paying devotion to such relics that we have many of of our finest churches- Sainte Chapelle in Paris was believed to hold the Crown of Thorns, and Canterbury had to be rebuilt to accommodate the faithful coming to the shrine of St Thomas a Beckett. In fact, there were many churches in Europe claiming to hold this particular relic- the only physical remains of the Lord left on earth, to believing Christians.
