To read Cardinal Sean O'Malley's introduction to this exhibit:

The exhibit retraces the events of the most ancient portraits of Christ, called acheiropoietos (i.e., not hand-made) and, in particular, of the Veil of Manoppello, Italy, visited in 2006 by Pope Benedict XVI during his first papal trip. Recent studies have re-opened the question of whether this veil, because of its unique features, might be the one used by Veronica to wipe Jesus' face on His way to Calvary.

Walker Percy's Enduring Fascination with the Human Person. From the introductory panel of the exhibit: Walker Percy was a prominent American novelist and essayist from the publication of his first novel, The Moviegoer, in 1961 to his selection as Jefferson Lecturer for the National Endowment for the Humanities in 1989, shortly before his death. Although not young when he published his first novel (Percy was 45), his rise to prominence was rapid after he succeeded in publishing his fiction. The Moviegoer won the National Book Award in 1962 and between 1966 and 1987 Percy wrote five more novels, all of which received critical acclaim. The success of his fiction also drew fresh attention to his essays, many of which had been written prior to The Moviegoer and he was soon to establish himself as an influential essayist as well.
