Michelangelo and Bernini: The Design and Decoration of the New St. Peter's Basilica, Part I

Michelangelo and Bernini: The Design and Decoration of the New St. Peter's Basilica, Part I

Margaret Kuntz, Professor of Art History and Chair of the Art History Department at Drew University, will present the first of two lectures on  St. Peter’s Basilica.  She will discuss the inter-relationship of the design and decoration of the new St. Peter’s from its inception under Pope Julius II through its completion under Pope Paul V.  In this lecture we will discover why the design was modified and built as a basilica plan rather than the centralized plan designed by Michelangelo and dictated by Pope Paul III Farnese.  We will also learn how the design change at the beginning of the 17th century impacted the construction process.  Please join us Tuesday, May 11 at 7 pm for a virtual presentation of this lecture.

It is requested that you sign up online, and there will be a fee of $8 to attend.  If you are unable to pay, please send an email to events@chathamlibrary.org and the fee will be waived.  A Zoom link will be sent to all attendees to join the lecture before it takes place.
