"'An infinity of churches without roofs': The Fate of Rome’s Medieval Churches after the Renaissance" by Dale Kinney

After more than a century in which the popes resided elsewhere, Martin V returned to Rome in 1420. He found the churches of the papal city in terrible condition, “an infinity of churches without roofs.” Many were eventually rebuilt, but some survive in a hybrid state to this day. Dr. Dale Kinney examines the roles of politics and aesthetics in decisions about whether to preserve or rebuild in the premodern era.

Dr. Dale Kinney is the Eugenia Chase Guild Professor Emeritus in the Humanities and Research Professor at Bryn Mawr College. Kinney lectures widely in the U.S. and elsewhere. As visiting professor she has taught graduate seminars at Temple University and the Institute of Fine Arts (N.Y.U.). She serves on a number of advisory and editorial committees, and is currently book review editor of Studies in Iconography.
