Originally produced as part of the "Vatican City" series by Dr. Neidinger in 2003, this program on the Vatican Museums features new photos, groundplans, and diagrams not included in the 2003 version.
Stashed away in the halls of the Lateran Palace were a few works of ancient Greece and Rome that survived the fall of the Roman Empire; these would be the core of the collection of the Vatican Museums. Art-loving Popes would add to the collection, hostile armies would loot it, noble collectors would donate to it to make, finally, a world class set of museums with collections spanning six continents and five millennia.
