Product description

The Baroque Dining Hall of the Abbey of Pannonhalma, with text translated from the Hungarian. King Saint Stephen founded churches, monasteris and dioceses; he donated his main monastery - the one dedicated to Saint Martin, standing on the Holy Hill of Pannonia - to the disciples of Saint Benedit, in order to persuade his nation to accept Christ. This book contains many full-page colour illustrations of the paintings in the dining hall of the abbey which were probably worked on between 1728 and 1730 by Davide Antonio Fossati. The level of artistic unity created here is in many respects unique in Hungary - the illusion created by the painted architectonic elements and the opulence of the figural compositions make the hall a dazzling yet elevating place.
The book is in fine condition with no signs of use.
