The Ruin of the Eternal City

Oxford University Press

Preservation practices in fifteenth-century Rome afforded a vital means for the Renaissance popes to acquire and extend temporal power over the ancient city. Papal excavation licenses controlled ancient remains with greater precision. Papal involvement in regulating antiquity helped stimulate even greater interest in preservation among the Conservators, the civic magistrates of Rome.

Keywords:   fifteenth-century Rome, papal temporal power, bureaucratic methods, regulations, excavation licenses, Conservators
