The history of St. Peter’s Church in Rome is actually the history of two successive churches, the first early Christian building and the actual church, built in the 16th and 17th centuries, as well as the way these two structures were and are connected in both a literal sense and an ideological, historically founded sense. Thus, this bibliography is divided in three parts: Old St. Peter’s, Old and New St. Peter’s, and New St. Peter’s. The intermediate phase, during which an important part of the early Christian basilica was still functioning but the new church had not yet been finished, is categorized here as Old and New St. Peter’s. Many authors are concerned with either the old or the new church and do not necessarily study the connections between the two. In collections of essays and exhibition catalogues, essays and entries about both churches may be found. Several titles are therefore of interest in more than one of the three categories. The user of this bibliography should therefore be sure to consider the three main sections complementary to one another.
