In 1506, the ferociously ambitious Pope Julius II shocked Christendom by razing the original St. Peter's, which had stood for over a millennium, to make way for a magnificent new church. Peter's would take two tumultuous centuries to complete, challenge the greatest visionaries of the Renaissance - Michelangelo, Raphael, and Bramante - and provoke the Reformation. I this fascinating book, R. A. Scotti traces the defining architectural feat of a glorious epoch and shows how its rise forever transformed the Eternal City.
