Art

From the time of the early Church, art has been a particularly favourable way of transmitting the good news of Christ. Consequently, the cultural heritage of religious character constitutes a tangible sediment of the Church of Christ. It is a heritage that remains alive and active in its primary purpose. At the same time, it allows us to approach the way in which this propagation of the Lord's message was carried out, to know with what aesthetic resources evangelisation has historically taken place and, in short, to recognise our identity as a Christians, a Militant Church that walks towards God through the way of beauty.

The collection of works of art that the Real Parroquia de Santa María Magdalena de Sevilla holds today is the result of at least five centuries of evangelising mission, bringing together cultural assets from the parish institution itself, the Convent of San Pablo, in whose temple the parish is now located, the different brotherhoods that are based there, other religious establishments that have now disappeared, as well as generous donations made by institutions and individuals throughout history.

Liturgical objects and sacred vessels, textile ornaments, paintings, sculptural images, documents, and other cultural assets make up a patrimonial ensemble that brings together a large number of artistic and historical values, which also contribute to the mystagogic transmission of the Gospel and in which the identity and memory of our community can be recognised through each object.
