When and how was this famous church built?
On 18.April 1506, the foundation stone for the still existing building was laid. The so-called Peter's Pence was created to provide financing and the Catholic Church sold "indulgences" at that time – absolution for cash.
Indeed, the building process started 1546, immediately after the laying of the foundation stone, but the process dragged, not least because of constantly changing construction managers. From 1547 construction, management was taken over by the world famous Michelangelo, who is responsible in particular for the dome, to be created with the St. Peter's cut out sheets. In the following years of construction, the church extended over an area of 15,160 m² and provided enough space for 20,000 people.
When cutting out the vast number of reprinted elements of St. Peter’s Basilica on 33.5 pages and gluing it carefully together, you will need only a fraction of the time of the real construction. The model on the cut out sheets St. Peter's Basilica is the ratio 1: 400 and covers an area of 114 x 55x37 cm. The work is rather challenging, but the completed largest Papal Basilica of St. Peter in Vatican is an object to preen.
St. Peter's Basilica is a pilgrim church
The long building of the cathedral was built as one of the seven pilgrim churches in Vatican City in shape of a Latin cross, as shown in the cut out sheets. This construction form provides a clear view to the Petrus grave below for as many believers as possible. All these features and fantastic designs reveal the filigree cut out sheets St. Peter's Basilica, including the both-way bent arcades.
