Editorial Reviews


"This, in itself, constitutes a major scholarly contribution and is made even more valuable by numerous photographs and a finely drawn series of reconstructions and plans. Scholars in history, art and architectural history, and archaeology will be mining this volume for years to come." Maureen Miller, The Medieval Review

"This book is of real value to palace studies generally." Paul Binski, Speculum

Book Description

Viterbo: Profile of a Thirteenth Century Papal Palace examines the form, function, style, and historical significance of one of the most remarkable structures created in Italy during the thirteenth century. Providing an indepth analysis of the palace's place in architectural history, Gary Radke also analyzes the social history of the building, demonstrating how Viterbo's civic leaders were able to attract the popes to their city and how local builders accomodated papal taste, needs, and sensibilities.
