 Our Description

 

Take a virtual tour of St. Peter's!

 

  • Strolling among the majestic naves of the Basilica, you can stop at any time to look at a work of art more closely. From papal monuments to altars, from statues to bas-reliefs, from floor to cupola, you can study each feature of the Basilica in as much detail as you would like. You can examine works of art close up, read about their history, and learn fascinating details about their creation. At any time, the main menu gives you many choices for further exploration.
  • Study the biographies of the 264 popes and look at their portraits. Those popes who contributed the most to the architectural and artistic development of the Basilica are examined in greater depth.
  • Religion, history and art are the three topics that have been given in-depth presentations through text, documentation, images and audio commentaries.
  • An art historian will guide you through St. Peter's works of art, with the help of exclusive images obtained with permission from the photographic Archives of the Fabbrica of St. Peter's at the Vatican. This multi-media presentation also features film clips, audio commentaries and narrative slide shows. As you study the works of art, you can easily return to your virtual tour where you may look at the works of art in their natural setting.
  • The CD-ROM's selection on works of art includes statues, altars, funeral monuments, cupolas, mosaics, bronze statues, furnishings and other artistic creations. All are thoroughly explored through film clips, photos, slide shows and audio commentaries. These features are all integrated to allow for an easy and comfortable means of studying these treasures in greater depth.
  • The overall architectural evolution of St. Peter's Basilica can be followed from age to age in this multi-media work: You are able to go from the very first plan commissioned by Emporer Constantine in 324 A.D. to the most recent additions completed sixteen centuries later.
