"Vatican Pinecone" which can be used as a search term (other variations you might want to try for book and article searching include - "Vatican pine cone" and "Vatican" and "pinecone" or "pine cone") . If you go to the University Libraries Homepage and try SetonCat you can attempt to look for books on this subject. It might be difficult to find specific works so you can broaden your search to try a site called - WorldCat (URL - http://www.worldcat.org) which provides a catalog of all resources held in libraries throughout the globe. Books not found on site can be ordered via E-Z Borrow and/or Interlibrary Loan links found on the Library Homepage as well. Searching with the term(s) - "Vatican Pinecone" (and variations) you can also try searching in a broader fashion for Old St. Peter's Basilica in particular and maybe as a very broad one and maybe conduct separate searches related to sculpture and the Vatican. These might provide sections/pages devoted to the pinecone within the text. Not an automatic, but a logical step towards finding additional materials.
When it comes to Articles & Journals, the same principles of searching with the precise terms and also looking at the broader context should help out. Aside from Academic Search Premier, you can check various other database. I would suggest other general interest and interdisciplinary ones along with history, theology, art, etc. Specific ones which might yield some results include - Lexis Nexis, JStor, Historical Abstracts, etc.
