Hall of Apostles - Palazzo Lateranense

Hall of Apostles

This room takes its name from the wall decorations where ten large episodes from the life of Jesus, concerning the mission of the Apostles, are frescoed. The arrangement of these frescoes is designed to give the illusion that there are large tapestries alternating with paintings. The Pope, the successor of Peter, the first of the Apostles, derives his authority from the Petrine primacy that has been handed down through history over the centuries.
