The Vatican City, one of the most sacred places in Christendom, attests to a great history and a formidable spiritual venture. A unique collection of artistic and architectural masterpieces lie within the boundaries of this small state. At its centre is St Peter's Basilica, with its double colonnade and a circular piazza in front and bordered by palaces and gardens. The basilica, erected over the tomb of St Peter the Apostle, is the largest religious building in the world, the fruit of the combined genius of Bramante, Raphael, Michelangelo, Bernini and Maderna.

History of Vatican City

Independence: 11 February 1929 (from Italy)

The Holy See's diplomatic history began in the fourth century, but the boundaries of the papacy's temporal power have shifted over the centuries. Popes in their secular role ruled much of the Italian peninsula, including Rome, for more than a thousand years.

  Gregorian Chant Home Page [ Princeton University ]
The main purpose of the Gregorian Chant Home Page is to support advanced research on Gregorian chant, particularly in the graduate seminar "Problems in Early Christian Music" (Music 511) taught at Princeton. The scholarly study of Gregorian chant is a wide-ranging, multi-faceted venture that interacts with many other areas of study, just as the liturgy for which it was created influenced many other areas of individual and social life.
