Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • The annual Lenten pilgrimage to dozens of Rome’s most striking churches is a sacred tradition dating back almost two
    millennia, to the earliest days of Christianity. Along this historic spiritual pathway, today’s pilgrims confront the
    mysteries of the Christian faith through a program of biblical and early Christian readings amplified by some of the
    greatest art and architecture of western civilization.

    In Roman Pilgrimage, bestselling theologian and papal biographer George Weigel, art historian Elizabeth Lev, and
    photographer Stephen Weigel lead readers through this unique religious and aesthetic journey with magnificent
    photographs and revealing commentaries on the pilgrimage’s liturgies, art, and architecture. Through reflections on each
    day’s readings about faith and doubt, heroism and weakness, self-examination and conversion, sin and grace, Rome’s
    familiar sites take on a new resonance. And along that same historical path, typically unexplored treasures—artifacts of
    ancient history and hidden artistic wonders—appear in their original luster, revealing new dimensions of one of the
    world’s most intriguing and multi-layered cities.

    A compelling guide to the Eternal City, the Lenten Season, and the itinerary of conversion that is Christian life
    throughout the year, Roman Pilgrimage reminds readers that the imitation of Christ through faith, hope, and love is the
    template of all true discipleship, as the exquisite beauty of the Roman station churches invites reflection on the
    deepest truths of Christianity.
