The Visual Culture of Catholic Enlightenment
Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "This groundbreaking book defines in depth and breadth the parameters of the Catholic Enlightenment in eighteenth-century Papal Rome, revealing the extent of the Church's engagement with the secular Enlightenment through Papal initiatives for religious and more secular reforms that had a direct impact on the visual arts, the sciences, and many facets of culture. A remarkable range and variety of such projects are studied in a broader cultural context, including fascinating subjects such as the Pope's coffee house in the Palazzo del Quirinale, the founding of the Capitoline Museum, the restoration of the Arch of Constantine and the Colosseum, and the cult of the saints, to name but a few. In this lucidly written and richly researched book, Christopher Johns recreates a complex historical fabric through the interweaving of art and culture during a period when Rome was the epicenter of the Grand Tour and Enlightenment Europe. This magisterial study should find a prominent and permanent place on the shelf of every student and scholar of eighteenth-century European visual culture." --Dorothy Johnson, University of Iowa.
