��View all Top Rentals ����� � SUBMIT ADTo mark the celebration of the 400th anniversary of St.

Augustine in 1965, the St.

Augustine Foundation, under the chairmanship of Archbishop Joseph P.

Hurley, bishop of the Diocese of St.

Augustine, launched the monumental task of restoring the-Cathedral.

A pivotal part of this restoration was the creation and placement of the risen Christ the King statue.

This high-relief statue depicting the risen Christ as King is located as the central figure in the reredos of the main sanctuary of the Cathedral Basilica of St.

Augustine.

This elaborate gilded and burnished statue was carved by Joseph Moroder in a little village in the northern Dolomites of Italy called Ortisei.

Burnishing is a medieval process of gilding on red clay and polishing with agate.

The Cathedral announces it has commissioned a reproduction of this Christ the King statue for purchase in the Cathedral's Bell Tower Gift Shop.

Considered a near replica, this 12 inch statue is a magnificent addition to the collection of artwork seen and enjoyed by the thousands of tourists and residents upon entering the Cathedral.

The liturgical celebration of Christ the King was instituted by Pope Pius XI in 1925 with his encyclical Quas Primas.

The Cathedral Bell Tower Gift Shop is located within the Cathedral Basilica of St.

Augustine at 38 Cathedral Place.

Hours are Monday through Friday 10 a.m.

to 5 p.m.; Saturday 11 a..

to 5 p.m.; and Sunday between the 9 a.m.
