Five hundred years ago Michelangelo began work on a painting that became one of the most famous pieces of art in the world—the Sistine Chapel ceiling. Every year millions of people come to see Michelangelo's Sistine ceiling, which is the largest fresco painting on earth in the holiest of Christianity's chapels; yet there is not one single Christian image in this vast, magnificent artwork. The Sistine Secrets tells the fascinating story of how Michelangelo embedded messages of brotherhood, tolerance, and freethinking in his painting to encourage "fellow travelers" to challenge the repressive Roman Catholic Church of his time. "Driven by the truths he had come to recognize during his years of study in private nontraditional schooling in Florence, truths rooted in his involvement with Judaic texts as well as Kabbalistic training that conflicted with approved Christian doctrine, Michelangelo needed to find a way to let viewers discern what he truly believed. He could not allow the Church to forever silence his soul. And what the Church would not permit him to communicate openly, he ingeniously found a way to convey to those diligent enough to learn his secret language."—from the Preface Blech and Doliner reveal what Michelangelo meant in the angelic representations that brilliantly mocked his papal patron, how he managed to sneak unorthodox heresies into his ostensibly pious portrayals, and how he was able to fulfill his lifelong ambition to bridge the wisdom of science with the strictures of faith. The Sistine Secrets unearths secrets that have remained hidden in plain sight for centuries.

In the year 44 before the year Zero in the Gregorian Calendar, Rome holds one of the largest pagan funerals in history, the funeral of Julius Caesar. The Jews of Rome, instead of respectfully filing past, take off their sandals and sit on the ground around the tomb. Why? In 1165 CE, a monk lays down the last tiles in a vast mosaic that covers the entire floor of the Cathedral of Otranto, a port city far down on the heel of the boot that is Italy. It has taken him and his assistants years to create this highly complex and almost psychedelic mishmash of images from ancient mythologies, the Jewish Bible, Christian saints, astrology and even the legend of King Arthur. Why did the monk make this, and what on earth - or in heaven - does it mean? A new century, a new era is born: the Baroque, whose very name means “bizarre, eccentric”. In 1624, the two masters of this new style work together as a team for one of the most sacred projects of the century - the colossal canopy over the main altar of the Catholic world, in St. Peter’s in the Vatican. After nine arduous years, the work is finished - and so is their friendship, forever. What happened? The list goes on and on in an unbroken chain all over Italy, from the foothills of the Alps to the man-made isles of Venice to the wonders of Florence and Rome to the magic of Naples to the ends of Sicily. Even in our days, the secret tradition continues. This book is about that tradition. About a secret message that has carried on throughout the centuries. And about us all.

The Sistine Chapel ceiling is the largest fresco painting on earth in one of the holiest places in the Christian world. Millions flock to see this work every year, but what the public does not know is that Michelangelo, encoded subversive, revolutionary ideas within this great work of art. Why does the flowing cape of God form a cross-section of a human brain? Why is Eve made from Adam’s side rather than his rib? In The Sistine Secrets two top scholars reveal the secret messages of protest that Micahelangelo hid in his Sistine Chapel masterpiece-right under the nose of the pope. This fascinating book shows how Michelangelo embedded messages of brotherhood, tolerance, and freethinking in one of his greatest works to encourage ‘fellow travellers’ to challenge the repressive Roman Catholic Church of the time. All of this was hidden in plain view in one of the Vatican’s most sacred sites. Relying on recent breakthroughs in our understanding of Michelangelo’s work and the uncovering of an underground movement of interfaith freethinkers and Kabbalists in Renaissance Florence, authors Blech and Doliner reveal the shocking nature of the Sistine Chapel ceiling’s many hidden messages. Professor Benjamin Blech is an internationally recognised author and lecturer and is recipient of the American Educator of the Year award. He has published a wide and varied number of scholarly publications, including 11 books. Roy Doliner’s studies span the spectrum of the humanities: languages, comparative religion, art history, Italian and Roman history and Judaica and he is specialist on the Renaissance in Rome. He is often a docent for scholars and international visitors to Rome and the Vatican museums.
