This is the first published summary of the entire complex of the great necropoles of Rome, which were situated on Vatican Hill. The work concerns one of the most extensive, richest, and least-known Roman archaeological phenomena and bears witness to the work of creating an underground museum that has been followed internationally as a model of conservation practice. From the submerged world of the necropoles emerges the funeral normality of the Roman world, from poorer cremations in wooden urns, to sumptuous sarcophagi, to sepulchres adorned with frescoes and mosaics. One can also observe Egyptian cults influencing the practice of epicurean philosophy. In addition, we can catch a glimpse of the first traces of Christianity, which include the presence of St. Peter the Apostle's tomb.
  • First of all my impressions on the book. This simply is one of the most amazing and important books I own. The photos are the highest quality and many are featured on the whole page. The diagrams and detailed maps are top notch stuff which only this book reveals. Yes the book is expensive but what you get in return is a wealth of knowledge and unrivaled photos that really take you there in a vicarious way.

    I call it the Underground Pompeii as it reminds me of when I visited Pompeii some years ago. Pompeii lives in a moment in time and paused for all of us to see. This underground tomb of Roman times seems to be paused just like that but in totally different terms. I have not been to the Vatican Necropolis even though I've been to Rome twice. So I speak to this only from this incredible book which has me wanting to return to Rome! My knowledge of Rome and the different sights has increased as I yern to learn more of the monuments which some still stand as the Pantheon and some are waiting to be seen from under the Vatican itself.

  • This is an excellent book on the Vatican Necropoles. The opening chapters provide a thorough introduction to the history of this archaeological site. The different chapters explore the various areas of the necropoles, with special attention to the archaeological discoveries. The photographs are amazing and plentiful. This book is coffee-table size, meaning that it is larger then the typical book. As far as I know, this is one of the only books on the subject of the Vatican Necropoles that provides such an in-depth analysis of the site and Peter's tomb.
