Inhaltsangabe: The home of the pope and the seat of the Holy See, the Vatican is a unique entity, a sovereign city-state that shelters some of most sacred treasures in the world within its hundred and ten acres. The story of this hallowed ground is inextricable from the history of the Catholic Church. But this book reveals that the Vatican is also a tiny living city of many facets, some of them little known. Vatican expert Dominique Chivot follows the journeys of countless pilgrims and cardinals, tracing their footsteps beyond the plazas, basilicas, and museums to unlock the secrets of Vatican City. Chivot recounts papal history in great anecdotal detail, highlighting the legendary reigns of popes from St. Peter to John Paul II, and illuminating masterpieces of architecture, painting, and sculpture executed by artists such as Bernini, Michelangelo, and Raphael.
Über den Autor: Dominique Chivot is a journalist based in Paris. The former Rome correspondent of the daily newspaper La Croix, he spent many years covering the activities of the Vatican and the past two popes. A professor at Sciences Politiques in Paris, he is the author of numerous books, including a biography of John Paul II.
