For some time there had been friction between Giuliano and Rodrigo, himself the nephew of a former pope, Calixtus III. Rodrigo had endorsed Innocent VIII in conclave and raised support for him but felt the Pope had given him little reward for his efforts. He and Giuliano had quarrelled at Innocent’s deathbed, when Giuliano had defended the Pope’s right to distribute papal money to members of his own family, an act Rodrigo had protested against. Given that, as pope, Rodrigo would take benefiting his own family to an entirely new level, there is certain irony to be derived from such objection.

He is credited not only with returning the papacy to Rome but with bringing the Renaissance to the city as well. Fifteenth-century Rome still had more in common with postwar, twentieth-century Beirut than it did with prosperous fifteenth-century Florence.
