Orvieto was a major center of Etruscan civilization.  Orvieto was annexed by Rome in the 3rd century BC.  After the collapse of the Roman Empire the city was held by Goths and by Lombards before its self-governing commune was established in the 10th century.  Orvieto's relationship to the papacy has been a close one since the 10th century.  Pope Urban IV lived at Orvieto between 1262 and 1264.  The city became one of the major cultural attractions of its time when Thomas Aquinas taught at the Studium.  The territory of Orvieto was under papal control long before it was officially added to the Papal States.  It remained a papal possession until 1860, when in was annexed to newly unified Italy.
