Synopsis: Twenty-seven years in the making, The Gardens of the Vatican is a private photographic tour of eight centuries of "green thoughts in a green shade." Reflecting the general history of gardening, the several gardens in the Vatican span worlds — the Persian-influenced quadrant gardens of the Teuton Cemetery and the Secret garden (adorned with lemon-trees in pots) are joined by gardens in the Italian, French, and English styles. The book is also rich in anecdote and detail: Pope John XXIII liked to ramble along the pathways and chat with the gardeners whereas his predecessor, Pius XII, wanted solitude, so the gardeners were obliged to hide. There is a fragment of the Berlin Wall, a Chinese pavilion given by the Catholics of that country, and a gnarled old olive tree transplanted from Gethsemane in the Holy Land. This gorgeously illustrated book offers a fascinating and inspiring glimpse of a bachelors' refuge, through nearly a millennium of history.

About the Author: Linda Kooluris Dobbs began her photographic record of the Vatican Gardens in 1981 with a very old and trustworthy Nikon F2. Her photographs have been published in The National Post and have been the subject of a major exhibition in Toronto in 2002. To visit Linda's website click hereKildare Dobbs was an award-winning essayist and poet, author of some 16 books including Running in Paradise, for which he was given the Governor General's Award. He was born in India to Irish parents and for many years has been Canadian. His work has been widely anthologized, and in 2000 he was invested with the Order of Ontario. He died in 2013.
