The 'Jewish' Sistine Chapel: The Hidden Jewish Messages of Michelangelo

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session is based on my book The Sistine Secrets: Michelangelo’s Forbidden Messages In The Heart Of The Vatican which was translated into 16 other languages and is soon to be a documentary movie. It proves that Michelangelo incorporated many teachings of Jewish Midrash and Kabbalah into the Sistine Chapel–daring ideas unknown to its 4 million annual visitors. And unlike the DaVinci Code, this book is not fiction but fact. Reproductions of all frescoes discussed will be visible.
