- Edades del Hombre 2017. Reconciliare
High resolution image. This link will open using lightbox, there may be a context switchThe Foundation Las Edades del Hombre and the Junta de Castilla y León have presented at INTUR the theme and poster of the XXII edition of the exhibition of sacred art that is celebrated in 2017 in Cuéllar.
During the restoration of the Mudéjar plasterwork that adorn the burials in the presbytery of the Church of San Esteban de Cuéllar, some bulls were discovered in the tomb belonging to Isabel Zuazo, important lady of the time, but above all a pious and fearful woman God. He kept them close to his heart, an indication of the desire to lay all his life, after death, before God seeking reconciliation from Him.
This historical fact inspires the account of the XXII edition of Las Edades del Hombre that emphasizes the need that the world has of reconciliation, that is to say, RECONCILIARE in Latin (present infinitive of the verb reconcilio), in Spanish: RECONCILIAR.
This new exposition wants to be, therefore, the presentation of a double reality: the positive gaze that reveals to us that God's mercy is greater than our sin and the realistic vision that can not hide the existing evil, division and hatred.
RECONCILIARE is not a mere vision of the past, it is a review to the present of society and man in parallel with the Sacred History that is represented through the works of sacred art that are exposed.
As a venue for the XXII edition of the exhibition, the Foundation has chosen three emblematic temples of Cuéllar, both religiously and historically and artistically: the church of San Andrés, the church of San Martín and the church of Esteban.
San Andrés has three naves and a cruise with three apses and it is known that it was already built in 1277. The main altarpiece is San Andrés, around which are distributed paintings of saints. Throughout the church you can see altarpieces, mostly baroque, which house paintings and carvings of an interesting bill. Many of these images come from other churches, highlighting the image of the Virgen de la Rochela or the Cristo de San Gil, among others. It possesses an important collection of sizes, among which it emphasizes a calvary of the primitive Gothic.
The church of San Martín, next to the castle, was declared a National Artistic Monument in 1931 and is one of the best examples of the Mudejar architecture of the town. It currently houses the Mudéjar Art Interpretation Center.
Finally, the Church of San Esteban was declared a National Artistic Monument in 1931 and it is already known in 1247, when it was the church of the sonsdalgo, guarding the archives of the 'Brotherhood of the Cross'. It is one of the most important Mudejar churches of Cuéllar and it stands out its great apse of brick. Its greater altarpiece is of neoclassical style with decorative elements of the rococo.
