Century of Progress

The Chalice of Antioch, center, on display at the Hall of Religion at the Century of Progress International Exposition, the World's Fair, held in Chicago. The cup, originally thought to be a Holy Chalice after being recovered in Antioch just before World War I, is no longer identified as a chalice. Experts at Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland believed it to be a 6th century standing lamp.
