The Tempietto, the embodiment of the Renaissance mastery of classical architecture and its Christian reinvention, was also the pre-eminent commission of the Catholic kings, Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabel of Castile, in papal Rome. This groundbreaking book situates Bramante's time-honored memorial dedicated to Saint Peter and the origins of the Roman Catholic Church at the center of a coordinated program of the arts exalting Spain's leadership in the quest for Christian hegemony. The innovations in form and iconography that made the Tempietto an authoritative model for Western architecture were fortified in legacy monuments created by the popes in Rome and the kings in Spain from the later Renaissance to the present day. New photographs expressly taken for this study capture comprehensive views and focused details of this exemplar of Renaissance art and statecraft.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
'Jack Freiberg's wonderful new book, Bramante's Tempietto, the Roman Renaissance, and the Spanish Crown, makes the compelling case that Spanish patronage in papal Rome in the late-fifteenth and early-sixteenth centuries resulted in some of the city's most important architectural commissions, culminating in Bramante's extraordinary Tempietto … [It] is a work so rich in scholarship that it leaves the reader begging for more - more text, more images, more color, and certainly more on Spanish Rome.' Victor Deupi, Sacred Architecture JournalSee more reviews
'The wealth of information in this monograph provides detailed coverage of Bramante's famous building together with some of its possible historical, political and religious contexts.' David Hemsoll, The Burlington Magazine
'This book is a treasure trove of information on possible meanings of Bramante's Tempietto … Freiberg's research greatly strengthens earlier tentative suggestions for seeing the overall form of the Tempietto as alluding to both the Holy Sepulcher and to the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem …' Ian Campbell, Renaissance Quarterly
