After the global hit Ars Sacra, Rolf Toman and his
team embark on a journey once more. The Palace of
Versailles and St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican are
the outstanding buildings from this epoch. There are
undreamed-of jewels in Europe and America, the New
World, waiting for discovery. Magnificent libraries,
vaults of science or mysterious gardens, skilled works
of porcelain and illusionistic painting, to name just a
few aspects of this complex epoch.
With his passion and meticulousness, photographer
Achim Bednorz succeeded to get details in front of his
camera that cannot even be seen on the original locally.
The photographs that are exclusive for this volume
are particularly well-presented in their large format.
The author Barbara Borngässer wrote her take on
Baroque history to fit, and swiftly takes the reader into
the Great World Theater, the Theatrum Mundi.
