The Ruin of the Eternal City

David Karmon

Oxford University Press

The idea that the Pantheon survives unchanged from antiquity is a Renaissance invention. Constant papal care ensured the survival of this famous landmark. In the fifteenth century, Eugenius IV sponsored an innovative restoration designed to recuperate its earlier historic condition. In the sixteenth century, Raphael decided to erect his tomb at the landmark, further directing the course of its future preservation.
