“Just as the work of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel changed forever the world of art, so will this book change forever the way to view and, above all, to understand the work of Michelangelo!” (Enrico Bruschini, Official Art Historian for the U.S. Embassy in Rome)
“This book of astounding revelations is built on careful scholarship, lucid exposition, and it is, above all, compelling reading.” (Jonathan Harr, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Lost Painting and A Civil Action)
“...(a) fascinating study of the Sistine Chapel. [...] Like the best art historians, the authors give us a fresh context for the times, never hesitating to make contemporary parallels. [...]This is a stimulating exploration that makes familiar masterpieces seem strange and new.” (Los Angeles Times)
“Fascinating.... Benjamin Blech and Roy Doliner appear to have few equals when it comes to the history and detail of the fresco.... a readable and informative piece of work.” (Manchester Evening News (U.K.))
“The journey of analysis of the complex images rewards the reader with many profound insights about the artwork and the complex nature of Michelangelo’s ideas....fascinating and engaging!” (The Jewish Press)
