    They have this lovely thing on display:

    That's Antinous, young lover of the Emperor Hadrian (no friend of the church, he) dressed as the Egyptian god Osiris.

    Connection to Christianity? None whatsoever. But Antinous was a lovely lovely man and some pope decided to keep a pagan statue of him on display in a church.
