The Calling of Saint Matthew was painted between 1599-1600 by Caravaggio for the Contarelli Chapel in San Luigi dei Francesi. It was commissioned by Cardinal Matteo Contarelli who wanted to depict scenes from the life of Saint Matthew, who happened to be his namesake. It tells the story of Matthew 9:9, when Jesus calls upon Mathew to join him as one of his apostles. The painting was Caravaggio’s first important job as well as part of the beginning of the naturalist movement in Europe. The painting is located in the left corner chapel of San Luigi closest to the alter.

The pinata became part of the Posada in the Catholic culture. It is believed that at the beginning of the 16th century the Spanish missionaries that went to America lured converts to their ceremonies by using piñatas.

They did this by covering the pot with colored paper, and giving it an impressive, perhaps evil appearance.

Does St. Stevens church demonstrate what Christopher Wren intended for the church that stands today? Christopher Wren was one of pioneering architects of the rebuilding of the London Churches after the great fire of London in 1666.
