Antique statue of Saint Peter : This antique statue of Saint Peter, believed XVIth century, is finely sculpted in limestone, and dates broadly from the « Haute Epoque » (Middle Ages through Renaissance up to the 17th century). This statue has Saint Peter holding the keys to Heaven and Hell, which represent the powers of absolution and excommunication. In the Gospel of Matthew 16:19, Jesus says to Peter, “I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on Earth shall be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth shall be loosed in Heaven. ». There are traces of previous paintwork embedded in grooves, clearly visible on the photos.
