Recently, the publication Ir-Redentur: History, Art and Cult of the miraculous effigy of Christ the Redeemer at Senglea, Malta was launched, a project supported by APS Bank. The event was presided over by Archpriest, Rev. Can. Robin Camilleri and the Chapter of the Birth of the Virgin Mary Basilica of Senglea.

The publication looks into one of the most sacred statues in Malta, depicting Christ burdened with the Cross, Senglea’s Christ the Redeemer. This statue has an intriguing history, which is researched together with a scientific analysis of its structure and composition, manufacturing technique and past restoration history, before finally delving into this state-of-the-art conservation project. Published by Midsea Books in association with the Senglea Collegiate Chapter, the book is edited by Jonathan Farrugia, with an introduction by Archpriest Camilleri and includes essays by Sandro Debono, Jonathan Farrugia, Valentina Lupo and Maria Grazia Zenzani.

Hervé Delpech, Chief Strategy Officer at APS Bank commented: “The Bank is committed to assist projects that promote art, history and culture. We are glad that we were able to support the publication of this book.”
