The Renaissance in Rome

Loren Partridge


Coming soon

Rome as we know it is largely a creation of the Renaissance, restructured and risen anew from a neglected medieval town. This book traces the extraordinary works of painting, sculpture, and architecture commissioned by Rome’s church and civic nobility as part of their rival bids for power and prestige.

With the aid of 118 illustrations, most of them in color, Loren Partridge charts the course of Rome’s transformation into the most magnificent showpiece of the Catholic world.

Loren Partridge is Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley. He is the author of numerous books on the arts of Renaissance Rome and Florence.
