9780271035642: The Culture of Architecture in Enlightenment Rome (Buildings, Landscapes, and Societies)

Beginning in the 1730s, Heather Minor tells us, Rome “began to resemble one huge construction site,” with a series of ambitious and expensive new building campaigns that transformed the face and substance of the city. From renovations of the Santa Maria Maggiore and San Giovanni in Laterano and the restoration of the Arch of Constantine to the creation of the Capitoline Museum and the establishment of the papacy’s Calcografia, the push for reform not only renewed papal and Church identity but also revived Italian culture as a whole. Based on extensive archival research and full of fascinating stories about the often stormy theological and intellectual debates central to the attempts at reform, The Culture of Architecture in Enlightenment Rome brings to life the personalities of architects, theologians, and intellectuals and links the extensive architectural programs with powerful shifts in the intellectual climate of the time.

About the Author:

Heather Hyde Minor is Assistant Professor of Architectural History at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign. She is the co-editor of The Serpent and the Stylus: Essays on G. B. Piranesi (2006).

Review:

Filled with discussions of taste, doctrine, ecclesiastical history, familial strife, archaeology, and book history, Minor has arrayed a rich feast ...  She brilliantly resurrects the aspirant ambitions of popes, scholars, and architects that built in order to keep Rome a centre of art and learning. --Robin Thomas, Pennsylvania State University
