    Fascinating article. Makes me want to book a ticket to Rome, and North Carolina (in that order, clearly) immediately!

    Excellent art historical study with detailed insight into the composition of the painting and the ceremonial order of the provincial Roman synod (1725) in the Basilica of St. John Lateran. Thank you.
