Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Reclaiming Rome contains the table of contents, list of illustrations, popes of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries and the preface. The author aims to provide material and answer questions for which the authorcould find no easy answers. The book is an attempt to provide some boundaries within which cardinals may be studied-how they were defined in the fifteenth century and how they related to the pope and his city. It is by no means a definition of what they were, for there are as many definitions as there were, and are, cardinals. The author hopes that it will encourage others to tackle this fascinating subject and period-whether through the study of individual cardinals or the topography of Rome.
