Basilica : the splendor and the scandal : building St. Peter's by R. A Scotti( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was the splendor--and the scandal--of the age, the defining event of the high Renaissance. In 1506, the ferociously ambitious Renaissance Pope Julius II tore down the most sacred shrine in Europe--the millennium-old St. Peter's Basilica built by the Emperor Constantine over the apostle's grave--to build a better basilica. Construction of the new St. Peter's spanned two centuries, embroiled 27 popes, and consumed the genius of the greatest artists of the age--Michelangelo, Bramante, Raphael, and Bernini. As the basilica rose, modern Rome rose with it, as glorious as the city of the Caesars. But the cost was unimaginable: the new basilica provoked the Protestant Reformation, dividing the Christian world for all time.--From publisher description
Sudden sea : the Great Hurricane of 1938 by R. A Scotti( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 1,139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hurricane was a foreign word in New England then. People didn't know how to pronounce it. They didn't know what it meant, and whatever it meant, they were sure it couldn't happen to them. But on that Wednesday, September 21, 1938, a maverick storm was sprinting a mile a minute up the Atlantic seaboard like a giant Cyclops, its intense, sky blue eye fixed on new England. At two o'clock a swath of coastline from Cape May to Maine was one of the wealthiest and most populous in the world. By evening, it was desolate. The Great Hurricane of 1938 was more than a storm. It was the end of a world. - Jacket
