The Vatican Spirit and Art of Christian Rome

The Vatican: Spirit and Art of Christian Rome
Metropolitan Museum of Art / Harry N. Abrams | 1982 | ISBN: 0870993488, 0810917114 | English | PDF | 406 pages | 104 MB

Truly underrated book, a stunning hardcover published in conjunction with the Metropolitan Museum, finely bound in Italy. The book is literally bursting with images (296 total; 283 in color) of the Vatican's artistic and architectural triumphs and highlights. Chapters include "The Government of the Church" & "The Vatican City State" (both of which serve as background information to the actual functioning and ongoings of the Vatican), as well as "Saint Peters," "the Apolstolic Palace," "Other Buildings and the Vatican Gardens," "The Vatican Museums" (survey on the wide range of museums on the grounds of the Vatican), "The Vatican Library," "The Vatican Secret Archive," "The Pilgrimage Basilicas," "The Catacombs," and "Palaces of the Holy See in Rome." Truly a visual feast for the eyes, accompanied by readable text; great survey of the Vatican and its holdings.
