Mission Statement:

The rays of the setting sun of the fifth of May lit up for the last time all the magnificence of the Rome of the Renaissance, then the fairest and richest city in all the world…. On the morning of the seventh of May, Rome presented a spectacle that baffled all description…. Everywhere there was the most ruthless devastation, everywhere rapine and murder. The air re-echoed to the wailings of women, the plaintive cries of children, the barking of dogs, the neighing of chargers, the clash of arms, and the crash of timber from burning houses. All accounts, even the Spanish, agree that no age, no sex, no station, no nationality, neither Spaniard nor German, neither church nor hospital was spared.

–Ludwig Von Pastor, History of the Popes, 9:387, 399
