renovatio urbis: Architecture, Urbanism and Ceremony in the Rome of Julius II (The Classical Tradition in Architecture)
Examining the urban and architectural developments in Rome during the Pontificate of Julius II (150313) this book focuses on the political, religious and artistic motives behind the changes. Each chapter focuses on a particular project, from the Palazzo dei Tribunali to the Stanza della Segnatura, and examines their topographical and symbolic contexts in relationship to the broader vision of Julian Rome. This original work explores not just historical sources relating to buildings but also humanist/antiquarian texts, papal sermons/eulogies, inscriptions, frescoes and contemporary maps. An important contribution to current scholarship of early sixteenth century Rome, its urban design and architecture.
