Summary: Once the bloodline of the Medici extended into the clergy, it was perhaps inevitable that at least one Medici pope would appear. This program illustrates the intrigue and open conflict surrounding the rise of Pope Leo X (Giovanni de' Medici) and the subsequent Pope Clement VII (Giovanni's cousin, Giulio) in the early 16th century. Revealing the political and military machinations of both figures, the film also explores the interplay between Medici power-plays and the products of the era's intelligentsia-specifically, Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel frescoes and Machiavelli's The Prince. Part of the series The Medici: Godfathers of the Renaissance.
