Title:Triumph of the Holy Name of Jesus

"While you have the light, believe in the light, so that you may become children of light." John 12:16a

"The high baroque is a pneumatological art, in which the Holy Spirit communicates blessing and inspiration, falling through the space of light...The late baroque and rococo are celebrations of light, intended to suggest glory, to introduce the worshiper to the space of paradise, and employing to this end a whole variety of means...material so light that by seeming to set the laws of gravity at nought, it could convey, symbolically, a sense of the nearness of heaven." (Nichols, 190)
