Description The lecture A story which changes the world: Sant'Apollinare Nuovo and Christian Initiation will be dedicated to a Late Antique basilica Sant'Apollinare Nuovo. There is an extensive mosaic decoration preserved on its walls, including besides other also a cycle of 26 scenes of Christ's passion, miracles and parables. For several indications, the cycle was attributed with a specific role – a key point of the lecture. Based on considering the side aisles as ideal viewpoint for observing this cycle and texts of the Church Fathers, an hypothesis will be introduced, which connects the cycle to the baptismal rite.
