In 1300, Pope Boniface VIII proclaimed the first Christian Jubilee, a year-long celebration during which sins could be pardoned, slaves freed, and debts forgiven. The tradition of the Jubilee continues to this day, and with each celebration, great works of art and architecture -- by artists such as Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Bernini, Richard Meier, Robert Rauschenberg, and Roy Liechtenstein -- have been commissioned to commemorate the holy year. This book records these masterpieces and the history of the Papal Jubilee, with hundreds of full-color photos. Tells the story of each Jubilee: the controversies; the stories of the popes, cardinals, and others involved; and the creation of the spectacular art to commemorate each Jubilee year. Oversize.
