In Rome, the ancient world is palpably present, and nowhere else is the mission of the church so evident. While the humanists sought to preserve and re-create the ancient city, giving it a new lease on life, the popes dispensed patronage much as any other contemporary Italian ruler, resulting in masterpieces of unprecedented skill and power.
