Synopsis:
Vatican. For most people the word brings to mind the Pope, the Roman Catholic Church and magnificent art and architecture. However, there is much more to this ecclesiastical state. Narrated by Martin Sheen (West Wing, Apocalypse Now), Inside the Vatican takes viewers to some of the most revered places in the world and to sacred ceremonies seldom seen by outsiders. The power of the place is inescapable and a long way from its humble origins as a graveyard. For nearly 2000 years its story has captured the imagination of millions. From here a religious faith grew to dominate the Western world. Crusades were launched, great inquisitions were convened, governments made and broken.
Included in this incredible tour are interviews with the men and women, from art restorers to religious leaders, who live and work inside the Vatican. Through their fascinating stories, we present what goes into maintaining the paintings, tapestries and documents of an institution that traces its history to the first century.
