Pope’s Elephant: An Elephant’s Journey from Deep in India to the Heart of Rome
Silvio A. Bedini (au). In 1514, Rome was the center of the Christian world, the home & workshop of Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, & Michelangelo. It was also the city of Pope Leo X, the pleasure-loving pontiff whose court at the Vatican was famous for its excess, frivolity, & impropriety, as well as for its newly arrived white elephant, Hanno. A gift from the king of Portugal, Hanno became a star. He was featured in processions & festivals, & was the subject of countless paintings, sculptures, & fountains. In this fascinating glimpse at a forgotten sidenote to history, Bedini gives us a view of early modern Europe & the inner workings of the Vatican. Amply illustrated.
