In 1508, Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. The thirty-three-year-old Michelangelo had very little experience of the physically and technically taxing art of fresco; and, at twelve thousand square feet, the ceiling represented one of the largest such projects ever attempted. Nevertheless, for the next four years he and a hand-picked team of assistants laboured over the vast ceiling, making thousands of drawings and spending back-breaking hours on a scaffold fifty feet above the floor. The result was one of the greatest masterpieces of all time. This fascinating book tells the story of those four extraordinary years and paints a magnificent picture of day-to-day life on the Sistine scaffolding - and outside, in the upheaval of early sixteenth-century Rome.

Porn Star is an engrossing portrait of a man that is credited with being the originator of modern pornography: Pietro Aretino (1492-1556). Aretino was the most famous writer of the sixteenth century, and considered like his contemporary, Niccolo Machaivelli (1469-1527), a literary god in London. In fact, both writers came to symbolize in the minds of Elizabethans: everything devilish about the Italian people; "devils' incarnates" as they were called in Shakespeare's day. Vastly underrated today as a writer, Aretino's time has come and he is a force to be reckoned with. Playboy, playwright, pornographer, poet, diplomat, shrewd man of affairs. Aretino typified the Renaissance man of action, embodying the mischievous genius of the Italian people. An immensely gifted polymath writer with an encyclopedic range of knowledge, experience and interests. Aretino's deadly "poison pen" aroused violent antagonism, as well as an idolatrous awe amongst his peers in his lifetime. He takes the reader on an unforgettable journey through the Italian Renaissance where we meet many of his illustrious friends, the most colorful people of the period crazy kings, deviant popes, eccentric artists, beautiful whores, deadly dukes and con men. Aretino's outrageous life culminates in an explosive climax that leads to the destruction of the holiest city in the world, Rome, or as the great religious reformer Martin Luther called it Babylon. Along the way, Aretino challenges William Shakespeare's title as the world's greatest writer.

"This volume outlines a Christian theology that takes worship as its basic framework, as the occasion of not only approach toward God in piety but also separation from God in sin. Drawing on Luther, Calvin, and especially Karl Barth, Matthew Myer Boulton builds a Reformed liturgical theology, maintaining that the God of Jesus Christ if a "God against religion," one who saves human beings from religion by entering it, transforming it, and ultimately ending it."--BOOK JACKET.

At thirty one, Michelangelo was considered the finest artist in Italy, perhaps the world; long before he died at almost 90 he was widely believed to be the greatest sculptor or painter who had ever lived (and, by his enemies, to be an arrogant, uncouth, swindling miser). For decade after decade, he worked near the dynamic centre of events: the vortex at which European history was changing from Renaissance to Counter Reformation. Few of his works - including the huge frescoes of the Sistine Chapel Ceiling, the marble giant David and the Last Judgment - were small or easy to accomplish. Like a hero of classical mythology - such as Hercules, whose statue he carved in his youth - he was subject to constant trials and labours. In Michelangelo Martin Gayford describes what it felt like to be Michelangelo Buonarroti, and how he transformed forever our notion of what an artist could be.
