Broadcasting career Thompson was educated at King's School Worcester and was a contemporary of Chris Tarrant. Thompson is frequently Sky News' leading anchor on major stories, often presenting on location. Assignments have included reporting from Rome and Vatican City on the death and funeral of Pope John Paul II in April 2005, the London bombings (July 2005 London bombings) of July 2005, Hurricane Rita and the Asian Tsunami where he was the first British presenter on the scene, reporting live from Phuket (Phuket Province) on the immediate aftermath of the disaster. He also reported from Haifa in northern Israel during the 2006 Lebanon War. A year later he returned to Rome and frescoed the Pucci Chapel in the Trinità dei Monti. Pope Paul III granted him a regular salary. He retouched many works of Raphael. He painted the decoration for the Paoline Chapel and other halls of Castel Sant'Angelo, some frescoes in the church of San Marcello (San Marcello al Corso), a monochrome in the Stanza della Segnatura (Raphael's Rooms) in the Vatican (Vatican City) and a cartoon of the Sistine Chapel. The painting recalls the ''Entombment (The Entombment of Christ (Caravaggio))'' in the Vatican (Vatican City) in scope, sobriety, and the photographic naturalism. The figures are nearly life-sized. Surrounding the Virgin are overcome Mary Magdalen and apostles. Others shuffle in behind them. He expresses the greater grief of the former not by a more emotive face, but by hiding their faces. Caravaggio, master of stark and dark canvases, is not interested in a mannerist (Mannerism) exercise that captures a range of emotions. In some ways this is a silent grief, this is no wake for wailers. The sobbing occurs in faceless emotional silence. The holiness of the Virgin is discerned by her thread-like halo. A large red cloth looms in the upper portion of the canvas; a common motif in deposition painting. Rachewiltz's translation caused some controversy. In recent years it has been a subject of discussion in UFO literature. The Vatican (Vatican City) denies having either copy made by Tulli. It is currently believed that the document had never been a part of the Vatican's collection, and remained Tulli's personal property. Upon Tulli's death it was supposedly left to a relative and lost. Lately a copy of the original transcript (wikt:transcript), as published by de Rachewiltz, is reported to have been found in an American library by anthropologist and UFO proponent R.

Vatican City

'''Vatican City''' ( it is the smallest internationally recognized independent state (sovereign state) in the world by both area (List of countries by area) and population (List of countries by population).

It is an ecclesiastical (Ecclesiology) or sacerdotal (Sacerdotal state)-monarchical (Monarchy) state ruled by the Bishop of Rome (diocese of Rome)—the Pope. The highest state functionaries are all Catholic (Catholic Church) clergy of various national origins. Since the return of the Popes from Avignon (Avignon Papacy) in 1377, they have generally resided at the Apostolic Palace within what is now Vatican City, although at times residing instead in the Quirinal Palace in Rome or elsewhere.

Vatican City is distinct from the Holy See ( which dates back to early Christianity and is the main episcopal see of 1.2 billion Latin (Latin Church) and Eastern Catholic (Eastern Catholic Churches) adherents around the globe. The independent city-state, on the other hand, came into existence in 1929 by the Lateran Treaty between the Holy See and Italy, which spoke of it as a new creation, not as a vestige of the much larger Papal States (756–1870), which had previously encompassed much of central Italy. According to the terms of the treaty, the Holy See has "full ownership, exclusive dominion, and sovereign authority and jurisdiction" over the city-state. Article 3 of the Lateran Treaty .

Within Vatican City are cultural sites such as St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. They feature some of the world's most famous paintings and sculptures. The unique economy of Vatican City is supported financially by the sale of postage stamps and tourist mementos, fees for admission to museums, and the sale of publications.
