About your Expert
Born in the Flanders Fields, I had an classic upbringing, hold a degree in Civil Law, Canon Law, Philosophy and Theology.
For years I am holding guided tours in the Vatican Museums as an official Didactic Operator.
I attempt to illuminate current policy challenges by analyzing historical precedents and analogues. As Kissinger put it, “History is not … a cookbook offering pretested recipes. It teaches by analogy, not by maxims.” History “can illuminate the consequences of actions in comparable situations.” But—and here is the key—for it to do so, “each generation must discover for itself what situations are in fact comparable.” “The longer you can look back, the farther you can look forward.”
This interactive seminar will use the very rich collections of the Vatican Museums to explain the evolution of art in early Christianity in the catacombs, showing the links between religion, politics, and economy in the transformations of styles and needs for art. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding how a movement became an institute.

Keep the words of the existentialist Albert Camus in mind: “Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”
