Extremely Rare Image of the Pope's Office

This rare image was taken at the end of the reign of Pius XII, by his personal physician, Dr. Galeazzi-Lisi. Mons. Jacques-Paul Martin can be seen with Madre Pascalina, covering her face. Today Pope Benedict has his desk on the other side of the room, facing this wall.


  1. Is that a microwave?

  2. I was going to ask what that microwave-y-loong thing was

  3. It kind of looks like a radio by gran used to have in her home. Quite the "modern" looking thing in those days, too!
