The English Pilgrimage to Rome: A Dwelling for the Soul
This fascinating narrative of English pilgrims and pilgrimages to Rome from Saxon times to the present day acts as a packed gazetteer of the material trqaces of the English in Rome, enabling the reader to track their presence through the city's monuments, churches and palazzi, and to use the stones and inscriptions of Rome and its environs to recover a sometimes forgotten but enlightening story. Judith Champ teaches Church History at Oscott College, Birmingham.
