A delegation from Comillas accompanied this Slovenian artist on a guided tour of the Almudena Cathedral
Marko Rupnik, SJ, a Slovenian artist, now living in Rome, visited the University and took a guided tour of his works at the Almudena Cathedral, along with a group of members of Comillas´ staff, among whom could be found Enrique Sanz, SJ, Dean of the Faculty of Theology. This artist, known by many as the Michelangelo of the 21st Century, visited the "Capilla del Santísimo" (Chapel of the Most Holy One), a work brought to completion in the year 2011; while accompanied by a delegation from the University, he also visited the "Sacristía Mayor" (Main Sacristy), completed in 2005, and finally, the "Sala Capitular" (Chapter House), inaugurated in October of 2006. During the tour, the participants were able to familiarize themselves first-hand with the procedures used in the works of Rupnik, who pointed out the importance of gold and black in his work. The artist defended art as a service, as being liturgical, and confessed "fleeing from real-life scenes for the purpose of stimulating the imagination".
