Michelangelo's Last Judgement, Sistine Chapel

Wonderful background to the Sistine Chapel provided by Nicolas. This was in lieu of such information since it is forbidden to give tours and present the info in the Chapel. Nicolas did a wonderful job in explaining the work of Michelangelo - both the famous ceiling and the and quot;Last Judgment and quot; paintings.
This statue is prominently seen on the tour when moving from the Sistine Chapel to St. Peter's. Wonderfully executed work of the Armenian saint who converted the pagan King Tiridates in A.D. 301. Tiridates proclaimed Christianity the official religion and made Armenia the first Christian nation.
