This magnet pictures one of several portraits by Italian artist, Tiziano Vecelli, known as Titian, of Pope Paul III (1468 – 1549). Alessandro Farnese's papacy ran from 1534 until his death. Pope Paul decreed the second and final excommunication of English King Henry VIII in 1538 but failed to stop the Reformation. Michelangelo's Last Judgement in the Sistine chapel, started during a prior papacy, was completed during Pope Paul's time.
