5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacularly Faithful, December 11, 2007
This review is from: The Sistine Chapel: A New Vision (Hardcover)
Having recently visited the Sistine Chapel my initial reaction to this beautiful publication is how spectacularly faithful the illustrations are! It was delivered to me today and I am enthralled by the beauty and fidelity of this wonderful book.

As to Father Pfeiffer's learned, detailed and exquisite study of this amazing work already it opens new insights, brings one deeper into the theology of this masterwork in a deeply intellectual but yet highly understandable way.

There are years of enjoyment, of learnining of glorification in this fabulous book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great treatise, November 22, 2008

This review is from: The Sistine Chapel: A New Vision (Hardcover)
This is a great book where the author leads us to understand that magnificent frescoes in the Vatican City were not just conceived as an artistic delight, but as an extremely well-planned message directed by the most eminent renaissance theologists.

As father Pfeiffer told me a couple of years ago, this is the best translation made from the original in German language, as he closely supervised the English translation.

Every summer, Dr. Pfeiffer lectures an art history course in Mexico City, where you can learn so many interesting things about European and Novohispanic art. Attending such courses is just like being right in the middle of the Sistine Chapel for an entire week!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, March 18, 2008
This review is from: The Sistine Chapel: A New Vision (Hardcover)
As an Art historian I consider this a very good book for those followers on Michelangelo, actually there is no more qualified person to write about this worderful work of art that Mr. Pfeiffer, even for those that look this theme for the first time it has reliable data about the iconography about this work, it give us a real support besides the easy and everybody's knowledge about this important work.
