Memories.The Chapel of St John the Baptist in the Church of São Roque in Lisbon
Both the Jesuit Church of São Roque and the nave Chapel of St John the Baptist miraculously survived the 1755 earthquake and the fierce fires that followed. The Chapel, commissioned in Rome by Dom João V, was intended as an act of faith and, in a wider context, to reinforce Portugal's diplomatic position in Europe.
While the city of Lisbon lay in ruins, many foreign visitors found their way to the Church of São Roque and were fascinated both by its interior and by the beauty of this Italian Chapel.  The art historian, Angela Delaforce, has brought together their own words and critical response to this remarkable miniature monument at a time when Lisbon was slowly recovering from its greatest disaster.
