An early royal treasury opened to the public was the Grünes Gewölbe of the Kingdom of Saxony within the 1720s. Throughout history, massive and costly artworks have generally been commissioned by spiritual establishments and monarchs and been displayed in temples, churches, and palaces. Although these collections of artwork were non-public, they had been usually made obtainable for viewing for a portion of the general public. In classical times, non secular establishments started to operate as an early form of artwork gallery. Wealthy Roman collectors of engraved gems (including Julius Caesar) and different treasured objects typically donated their collections to temples.
