Rome – imperial city, fountain-head of the Christian world and site of some of the world’s most amazing ecclesiastical architecture. This book takes the reader on a journey through Rome’s most important churches. 180 cathedrals, churches and chapels are featured, from grand basilicas to intimate chapels. In the process, the book provides a dramatic portrayal of the history of Christianity – from its earlier days, its upheaval and schisms, to the glories of the Renaissance and beyond.
