St. Peter's in the Vatican by William Tronzo



St. Peter's in the Vatican has a long and turbulent history. First constructed in the fourth century to honor the tomb of St. Peter, the Early Christian edifice was gradually torn down and replaced by the current structure. The history of the design and construction of this new building spans several centuries and involved several of the most brilliant architects, includin St. Peter's in the Vatican has a long and turbulent history

has been added to your Cart. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is seriously interested in the architectural history of the Vatican. The essays on the original basilica really flesh out the architectural history of that venerable structure in detail. The essays dealing with the construction of the present basilica are equally impressive, particularly the evolution and character of Bramante's designs, which are far more complex than I had realized.

This is a book of effective synthesis rather than a major rethinking.

Old St. Peter's Basilica was the building that stood, from the 4th to 16th centuries, where the new St. Peter's Basilica stands today in Vatican City. Construction of the basilica, built over the historical site of the Circus of Nero, began during the reign of Emperor Constantine I. The name "old St. Peter's Basilica" has been used since the construction of the current basilica to distinguish the two buildings.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who is seriously interested in the architectural history of the Vatican. The essays on the original basilica really flesh out the architectural history of that venerable structure in detail. The essays dealing with the construction of the present basilica are equally impressive, particularly the evolution and character of Bramante's designs, which are far more complex than I had realized. The section on Bernini's work at the Vatican could form a book all on its own. This is by far the best book on St. Peter's Basilica that I have come across.
Uaha
I'm a architecture buff with history thrown in. This book captures the history of the very beginning of the Vatican with plenty of historic drawings. No better book I've seen has this quality. If only I could visit the Vatican one more time..
A book I highly recommend concerning the Vatican with the true beginning of a Roman graveyard is called:
The Vatican Necropoles: Rome's City of the Dead
That book is truly amazing with incredible photos feature the Roman site beneath the Vatican. It's not a cheap book but it's huge with incredible quality photos of this unseen piece of historic Rome. Almost a little Pompeii beneath the Vatican.

I give it a thumbs up for the history that it covers, for the price you think that there would have been more color instead of black and white pictures. I would suggest it to a fellow friend
