FACTS & HISTORY: The Gates of Paradise; a massive pair of doors that are considered the defining moment of the Italian Renaissance. The original 17-foot gilded doors were created in the 15th-century workshop of sculptor and artist Lorenzo Ghiberti.
The original Gates of Paradise were set within the east portal of the Baptistery in Florence, and they functioned as a space of transition through which the baptized passed on their way to the Cathedral, which signified the Heavenly Kingdom to believers.
