ZACATECAS

MUSEUMS

Episcopal Gallery Museum: the most cherished religious and spiritual treasures of Zacatecas are on exhibition in this museum inaugurated in July 1998, on the southern corner of the Cathedral.
The main rooms of this museum are:
  • The Room of the Popes: it shows portraits of some of the primates of the Catholic Church, such as Pius IX, who ordered the creation of the Dioceses of Zacatecas in 1863. It also exhibits an engraving with the image of all the pontiffs, from Saint Peter up to Pius IX.

  • The Room of the Bishops: it shows ornaments and accessories that characterise and distinguish these hierarchs of the church, such as mitres, pluvial copes, staffs, skullcaps, gloves and sandals, amongst others; besides their garments and items of clothing with local names such as the amito, alb, cord, tunicela, dalmática and chasuble. They are accompanied by an explanation of when each outfit must be worn.

  • Other garments and ornaments: there are clothes of the ecclesiastic hierarchy in this room, belonging to the Presbyters and Canonical; also sacred ornaments and objects of cult for the adoration of the Eucharist.

Useful Information of Zacatecas
  • Liturgical books: old and valuable documents are protected in here, including editions regarded as rare and singular, such as the Polyglot Bible published in 1572 under the reign of Felipe II; choral books with beautiful drawings and colourful capital letters. There are also Pontifical, Sacramental, Lectionary, Antiphonary, Roman Breviary and Missal books, amongst others.

  • Room of the Virgin: it exhibits seven medallions that depict the life of the Virgin through beautiful paintings.

  • Eucharistic Relics: valuable objects of jewellery and other metals are exhibited in this room, such as monstrance and grails (sacred vases), manifests, altars, amphorae, altar cruets, chrism containers and hand bells, amongst others.

  • Room of Christ: it is adorned with delicate objects carved in marble, and its strokes seem to be of oriental origins (probably the Philippines); and the Calvary of Christ is represented by figures made of dough of maize cane.
One of the last acquisitions accomplished by this museum is the fabulous model of the Historic Centre, elaborated in the XIX century by Victor Hugo Ramirez Lozano. The work illustrates the everyday life of the period and allows being aware of the changes the city has undergone.
