Synopsis: Charles Stinger probes the basic attitudes, underlying values, and core convictions that animated Rome's intellectuals and artists from the time of Pope Eugenius IV's return to the Eternal City in 1443 to the sacking in 1527. This is a fascinating cultural history and essential reading for all students of the Italian Renaissance. In a new Preface to this paperback reissue, Stinger identifies significant new works that have appeared since the book was first published.

Review: At the beginning of the 15th century, Rome proclaimed itself, as it had done throughout its history, caput mundi, "the head of the world." The truth, writes Charles Stinger, was less glorious: the popes had long since abandoned Rome for palaces in French Avignon, and the principal trading centers were in places such as Alexandria, Marseilles, and Constantinople. Even within Italy (which was still ununified), Florence and Venice were more important culturally. With the Renaissance, however, as European elites became interested in studying and emulating the ancient past, Rome became a great center anew: the popes returned, and travelers from around the world came to see the ruins of ancient times and to converse with intellectuals and artists. The transition, Stinger writes, was "from medieval alley and tower to Renaissance street and palace," from a closed and suspicious urban village to an open and vibrant city. With a cast of characters including Lorenzo de Medici, Michelangelo, and Lucrezia Borgia, Stinger relates a fascinating story of the city's renewal--which involved no small amount of intrigue. --Gregory McNamee
