 Santa Casa da Misericórdia of Lisbon, having settled in the former professed house of Saint Roch in 1768, became the owner of some of the most fundamental works in the history of Portuguese art. Aware of this responsibility, the Treasury Museum (Museu do Tesouro) of the Chapel of Saint John the Baptist of the Church of Saint Roch (Igreja de São Roque) was founded in 1905 with the express purpose of making this collection of Italian Baroque art known. Over the course of time, the museum broadened its perspective, becoming the present-day Museum of Saint Roch (Museu de São Roque), where the heritage in the institution's custody is conserved, studied and disseminated through publications that frequently reassess the knowledge acquired.
The museum catalogue, as an instrument that systematises knowledge of the works of art on display and publicises the collection, is a perfect example of this process. The present edition of the catalogue - published twelve years after the previous one, contemporary with the museum's inauguration - thus brings together numerous contributions presenting the most recent developments in knowledge of the pieces, thus fulfilling Santa Casa da Misericórdia of Lisbon's cultural purpose of making this art collection a vehicle for cultural promotion, accessible to the entire community and benefiting a heritage that belongs to everyone.
