Anthony Blunt's GUIDE TO BAROQUE ROME, the fruit of a lifetime's work,
was a pathbreaking book when it was published in 1982. It quickly
established itself as essential reading for traveller and student alike
and a new generation of scholars was inspired to explore this field in
even greater depth. PALLAS ATHENE is now proud to present the first
synthesis of these exciting new discoveries, in a fully revised edition
of a book that has been called 'the greatest architectural guidebook
ever written' Each of the over 300 entries discusses in detail the
history of the church, its design and construction as well as its
significant features and decoration (including paintings). Much new
information has been amassed since the original edition appeared, and
care has been taken to make this material as accessible as possible,
whether it is an appraisal of the patronage history of a particular
chapel, a new attribution, or the full significance of a fresco cycle.
