The Treasures

One of the Cathedral's processional crosses has a corpus by Benvenuto Cellini (1500-1571), probably the most gifted goldsmith in history. Few of his works have found their way to the United States.

The gilt bronze figure, 131 inches high, was originally in the private chapel of the Palazzo Guadagni in Florence. Purchased at auction by the Cincinnati Art Museum, it was repurchased with contributions collected mainly by the Cincinnati Post and presented to the Cathedral in 1957.
