Amid restorations, archaeological excavations, and unpublished archives, scientists and historians are rediscovering the fantastic 2,000-year architectural history of the Vatican and revealing the role of art in building that universal seat of Christendom. Told through a series of interviews and animation storytelling, this film provides answers to key questions, such as why the Church constructed Vatican City, how they chose the location of the buildings in the Vatican, where Saint Peter was buried, where the Church obtained the art in the Vatican, and which artists were involved.
