8: Silverware

Metalwork was intended to fulfil certain specific functions, often irreplaceable ones, within the Christian ritual. However, it has always been open to the aesthetic currents of its time. Everything used in religious ceremonies should be worthy of its spiritual mission. For this reason,  items should be made of precious metals, have high-quality finishes, and should be beautiful. Therefore, pieces were made in the reigning artistic style of their time.
