Vatican Council II photos

The view inside the basilica of St Peter's during the sessions of the Council
I share with you today 4 photos that speak for themselves. They were taken at the Vatican Council II, which opened officially on October 11, 1962. Many photos were taken of the event, especially inside the basilica of St Peter's, and these are just a few unusual angles. For three full years Bishops and cardinals gathered with the Pope and other theologians to discuss, at times argue and eventually vote on the documents that were issued.
