Santo Spirito: A Renaissance Church

Synopsis
Santo Spirito is the only church designed from scratch by Filippo Brunelleschi. Built 40 years after his death, Brunelleschi’s executors had only a wooden model of the design to follow. Investigates where the design of the actual church conforms to Brunelleschi’s principles and where major changes were made. Looks at how local families from the quarter contributed to the building fund by purchasing family chapels within the church.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
