February 6, 2024

Even before completing “The Last Judgment” in the Sistine Chapel, Pope Paul III had chosen Michelangelo to decorate the walls of his new namesake chapel – the Pauline Chapel. Used as an antechamber to the Sistine Chapel, the Pauline Chapel contains Michelangelo’s last two paintings. This episode discusses the history and function of the chapel, as well as the first of the two frescoes executed by a 67-year-old Michelangelo.
