Secrets of the Dead: Michelangelo Revealed More than five centuries ago, Michelangelo Buonarroti was the darling of the Catholic Church. Throughout his masterful career, the Papacy commissioned him to create many of its most important pieces, including the frescos of the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica of St. Peter. But five centuries later, new finds are revealing a darker side to the master artisan. While restoring one of Michelangelo's famous statues art historians have found evidence of Michelangelo's involvement with a clandestine fellowship trying to reform the Catholic Church from within. 2 Wednesday, May 13, 7pm
