Vatican Museums from Jewish perspective

Discover the hidden secretes of the Sistine Chapel

Discover one of the world’s richest art collections with a special focus on the Jewish history of the Vaticans Museums

Kabbalah and other traditions of Jewish thought so influenced Michelangelo that he incorporated them into many works of art. But he was forced to conceal them because his commissions came from popes who did not share his positive view of Judaism. Amazingly, not one of the nearly 300 figures Michelangelo painted on the ceiling is Christian. Its subjects are 5% pagan and 95% Jewish, according to Rabbi Blech.

This memorable experience incudes:

  • The Sistine Chapel with a special focus on Moses life, the Book of Genesis and  the hidden messages of Michelangelo
  • The Jewish Lapidarium (not always open)
  • The Courtyard of the Pine Cone, the Gallery of the Candelabra, the Gallery of the Geographical Maps, the Tapestry Gallery
  • Raphael Rooms
  • Saint Peter’s Basilica
