Description
 
Experience the grandeur of Rome's art, architecture, history and - above all - faith. This Guide 4 Pilgrims includes almost 800 images, from more than a hundred of Rome's most important pilgrim sites, found in twelve convenient walking tours that include detailed maps.   For the pilgrim, Rome bears witness to twenty tumultuous centuries of Christian history, like no other place. The Eternal City's abundance of sacred treasures can overwhelm, however, especially when so many tourist guides fail to focus on the faith. This is the indispensable Guide 4 Pilgrims on Rome and the Vatican. Whether traveling there or simply enjoying it from an armchair, pilgrims can experience the human drama that has always defined the Eternal City: from ancient emperors and martyrs, to Renaissance popes and artists, to the enduring legacy of Rome's architects and saints.  Christianity has always demanded Rome's attention, just as the Eternal City has commanded the world's. Regardless of the passing of brutal emperors and empires, however, Rome still confirms that the gates of Hell have not and shall not prevail against Christ's Church.   (The "Backpack Edition" is designed for the rough-and-tumble traveler who wears out guidebooks quickly while personally visiting each site. It is more economical because its interior is printed in black and white.)
