The Arts: The Vatican

Rome Reborn: The Vatican and Renaissance Culture presents 200 or so of the Papacy's most precious manuscripts, books, and maps -- many of which played a key role in the humanist recovery of the classical heritage of Greece and Rome. The exhibition presents the untold story of the Vatican Library as the intellectual driving force behind the emergence of Rome as a political and scholarly superpower during the Renaissance. <>
