This series, published in association with the American Academy in Rome, examines important works commissioned by the Popes during the Renaissance and Baroque periods, that is, from 1400 to 1800. Based on primary archival research and close archaeological examination of the monuments (including painting, sculpture, and architecture), monographs in this series demonstrate how the arts patronage policy of the Popes was closely allied with their political ambitions in a manner closely analogous to that of the Roman emperors, whom the Popes were consciously mimicking.
