Moreira Azevedo, delegate of the Pontifical Council for Culture delegate, contributes to the Christian Iconography Studies with a set of sixteen essays on iconographic themes such as the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, the Immaculate Conception, the Nativity or Eucharist, and the saints of great devotion such as St Paul, St Sebastian, St Anthony, St Vincent, St. John of God and St Theotonius.
