BeschreibungThis book is about the creation of an acknowledged masterpiece and its mixed reception by contemporaries. It was created at a moment of crisis when the spirit of Renaissance humanism was giving way to a new sense of threat within the church as defections of the faithful to the new Protestant sects multiplied across Europe. The examination of the fresco will be of interest to historians, historians of religion and of art. Our interest in, and understanding of, the Counter-Reformation has been growing and deepening in recent years.
