The word Witnesses together with the coming of the Holy Spirit represented on a panel painted in the 16th century by the master Diego Rosales for the main altarpiece of the parish church of Flores de Ávila, a small village in the province, make up the title and poster for this twelfth exhibition of the Foundation Las Edades del Hombre.
The Ávila exhibition is part of the third and final cycle of exhibitions the foundation has been organising in the cathedrals of Castilla y León. It comes after Segovia and focuses on the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is consequently followed by Pentecost and the birth and spreading of the Church as His Witnesses. Our last visit will be to Ciudad Rodrigo in 2006. This will bring our pilgrimage around Castilla y León to an end, a journey which has also seen our exhibition venture into Europe and North America.
Besides the focus on the Church, which is presented under the name of Witnesses, this year and even more so with it being in Ávila, mention must also be made of Queen Isabella the Catholic on the 5th centenary of her death, and of the Ávila mystics St. Teresa of Jesus and St. John of Ávila.
This walled city’s magic and mystery is complemented by a province that is rich in contrasts and tourist attractions of all kinds, which you can visit using our proposed routes, and thus do justice to all the villages that have loaned us the best pieces from their heritage so that we could put together an exhibition as graceful as Witnesses.
