    Description

    The Agony and the Ecstasy is a fictional biography of Michelangelo, history’s greatest sculptor.

    Summary of the Book

    In the wake of the Renaissance, amidst the turbulence and chaos of artists trying to make a living and the Church’s tribulations as warring Popes, the de’Medici family and the crazed monk Savonarola clashed constantly, one man was about to rewrite history. He was a born lover of women, and his charisma and talent drew beauties such as the daughter of Lorenzo de’Medici himself, and the melancholic and gorgeous Vittoria Colonna. He was born into a family of small-scale bankers in the heart of Tuscany. Despite his parents’ hope that he would study grammar, the boy had other things in mind. Destiny had decided that the world needed a sculptor, an artist like it had never seen before. It found him in this boy, this man who would be driven by the Church and by his own insane dedication to his work to create some of the greatest works of art in history. That man was Michelangelo Buonarroti, and this is his story.
