The architectural splendor of the Cathedral as improved by the Grand Dukes provided a stage for the solemn Renaissance and Baroque liturgies which the 17th- and 18th-century vestments shown in this room evoke.

The symbolic meaning of Christian liturgical vestments is clear in Saint Paul’s assertion that believers wear salvation as a garment: writing to the Galatians, the Apostle said: “Those of you who are baptised in Christ have clothed yourselves in Christ” (Galatians 3,27). Thus the ritual garb of sacred ministers recalls the new condition of all believers: the rich textiles allude to a common destiny of glory, the gold and silver thread to a share in Christ’s regal status.
