Reviews

'Jack Freiberg's wonderful new book, Bramante's Tempietto, the Roman Renaissance, and the Spanish Crown, makes the compelling case that Spanish patronage in papal Rome in the late-fifteenth and early-sixteenth centuries resulted in some of the city's most important architectural commissions, culminating in Bramante's extraordinary Tempietto ... [It] is a work so rich in scholarship that it leaves the reader begging for more - more text, more images, more color, and certainly more on Spanish Rome.' Victor Deupi, Sacred Architecture Journal
'The wealth of information in this monograph provides detailed coverage of Bramante's famous building together with some of its possible historical, political and religious contexts.' David Hemsoll, The Burlington Magazine
'This book is a treasure trove of information on possible meanings of Bramante's Tempietto ... Freiberg's research greatly strengthens earlier tentative suggestions for seeing the overall form of the Tempietto as alluding to both the Holy Sepulcher and to the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem ...' Ian Campbell, Renaissance Quarterly
