The papacy needed to restore its credibility after the schism in the fourteenth century, which had taken their control to Avignon, an event that resulted in three Popes ruling at the same time (Hollingsworth 1994: 227–33). Back in Italy, the Popes of the Wfteenth century employed a great number of humanists while commissioning the most extensive exploitation of antiquities known until then in the city of Rome (Hollingsworth 1994: 245–58; Schnapp 1993: 122–30).

The centuryold Adolf Michaelis Die archa¨ologischen Entdeckungen des 19. Jahrhunderts (1906) (A Century of Archaeological Discoveries, 1908) limited itself to the archaeology of the classical Great Civilizations, as did Ranuccio Bianchi Bandinelli’s Introduzione all’archeologia classica come storia dell’arte antica (Introduction to classical archaeology as history of ancient art) seventy years after.

Most of the collections, however, were kept in private houses. This interest in antiquities, in which the object was increasingly valued for its age and not for what it meant in antiquity, crystallized in the Wrst legislation 38 Early Archaeology of Great Civilizations promulgated regarding antiquities.
