Hopkins History: The "Christus Consolator" or "The Divine Healer" statue, shown above, is located in the lobby of the domed Billings Administration Building at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. A gift to the Hospital by one of its trustees, William Wallace Spence, the statue was sculpted by Theobald Stein and unveiled on October 14, 1896.Over the years, the statue has served as a focal point in various Hospital traditions and commemorative events, from farewell ceremonies for the Hopkins Hospital Units in World War II to an annual Christmas caroling service. For some, the statue is a sign of spiritual comfort and hope. For others, it is a symbol of compassion and caring.
