In this dramatic journey through religious and artistic history, R. A. Scotti traces the defining event of a glorious epoch: the building of St. Peters Basilica. Begun by the ferociously ambitious Pope Julius II in 1506, the endeavor would span two tumultuous centuries, challenge the greatest Renaissance mastersMichelangelo, Raphael, and Bramanteand enrage Martin Luther. By the time it was completed, Shakespeare had written all of his plays, the "Mayflower" had reached Plymouthand Rome had risen with its astounding basilica to become Europes holy metropolis. A dazzling portrait of human achievement and excess, "Basilica" is a triumph of historical writing.

R. A. Scotti is the author of Basilica, on the building of St Peter's in Rome and Sudden Sea: The Great Hurricane of 1938, and four novels.
