Description: Drawing and graphic reconstruction of the Constantinian basilica over the grave of St. Peter in Rome. The figure shows, according to the caption, the building in 1450. In the right background, however, the Sistine Chapel can be seen, whose construction started in 1475 and finished in 1483. Since the foundation stone was laid for the new St. Peter's Cathedral in 1506, the drawing shows the state between 1483 and 1506. Drawing from H.W.Brewer, 1891
