The Nicholas V Chapel, or Cappella Niccolina, in the Vatican Apostolic Palace was the private chapel of pope Nicholas V. Decorated between 1448 and 1450 with the lives of St Stephen and St Lawrence, Doctors of the Church and Evangelists, the chapel is the only surviving mural cycle executed by the Florentine Fra Angelico in Rome. As such, it represents an important case study for a better understanding not only of Fra Angelico's oeuvre, but also of papal patronage at a crucial time for the reinstatement of Rome as papal See and of ecclesiastic power within the city.
