The view of the Florence Baptistery (Battistero di San Giovanni) was a nice introduction to the Martelli Saint John. The early Christian mosaics for the patron Saint, Saint John the Baptist, were a holy ascension to the God in Heaven, taking the patron Saint, Mars, through a process of equation to current Christian philosophy and the religion of the day. A Christian darkness was transported through to a lightness and the love of Christ.
