    century. Raphael’s School of Athens was painted in a room at the Vatican that held great importance to the Church. Even though this was a sacred location, the series of paintings depicted realistic representations of Greek philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle. Plato is pointing his hand towards heaven and Aristotle points to the earth.
