Rome received its final push to renaissance glory from Pope Leo X, second son of  Lorenzo de Medici. He came to the papal throne in 1513, following Julius II. He was at  ease in social situations, a skilled diplomat, demonstrated great skill as an administrator,  and was an intelligent and beneficent patron of the arts. He encouraged scholarly  learning, and supported the theatre, an art form considered to be of ambiguous morality  until that time. Most prominently, he supported the visual arts of painting and sculpture.  He is well known for his patronage of Raphael, whose paintings played a large role in  the redecoration of the Vatican. Under Leo X, the ruins of Rome began to be more  effectively preserved, and metaphorically, so did the morality of the Papacy. When he  died in 1521, Rome's Golden Age effectively ended, and the Renaissance as a whole  began to fade.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
