For example : Each year, PGI and Ancovart (guide lecturer association) offer a specific training entitled “Art sacré” to their members headed by the Institute of Sciences and Theology of Religions (ISTR) of the Catholic Institute of the Mediterranean Sea (ICM). The institute provides theoretical knowledge adapted to the professional practice of visiting buildings or religious spaces, and concrete skills through the precise study of works of art or religious places.
