In this swift, colorful narrative, R. A. Scotti brings to life the artists and the popes, the politics and the passions behind the audacious building of St. Peter's Basilica during the 14th and 15th centuries. Scotti turns sacred architecture into a spellbinding human epic of enormous daring, petty jealousy, and staggering genius.

National Review

A fair and fascinating examination of splendorous and scandalous events. Scotti is a dramatic storyteller.
