Travel Through Rome

Nigel ScotlandSKU: TTR2839 ISBN: 9781846252839



Rome lies at the heart of the Christian faith being the place where the two great apostles, Peter and Paul, both taught and died. Since the sixth century AD, books have been written about this wonderful city with the aim of encouraging pilgrims to come and draw spiritual strength from its history, culture and worship. One of the aims of this travel guide is to convey something of the challenge and inspiration of the early Christian communities of Rome.

The DayOne Travel through series could not overlook the 'eternal city'. What a normal tourist with an interest in Christianity looks for in a handy and up-to-date guide is given attention in this book. The guide introduces the traveller to the different ancient sites that make Rome unique: from the significant places of the Roman Empire to the catacombs of the early Christian communities up to the magnificent buildings of the Roman Catholic church. Historical introductions coupled with artistic explanations help us to appreciate the various monuments and works. Practical suggestions on how to organise the tour are also wise and helpful. The tragic irony of Rome is that she is known as one of the cradles of Christianity, but the reality is that the Bible was a forbidden book for centuries...this book is a reliable and enjoyable tour guide of one of the most fascinating cities of the world (perhaps this is a biased comment!)
