  3. The deviant artefacts (this depicted rummage, the Aula, which helds his name, the "museum of modern christian art", which spoil utterly the Appartamento Borgia etc etc) which the unhappy Montinian Papacy delivers to the posterity speaks volumes about the twilight character of him and his pontificate: demolition, discontinuance, excentrical hights, Modernism in all purity.
