9780934977029: The Marvels of Rome: Mirabilia Urbis Romae

Written for the pilgrim and sightseer c.1143 by Benedict, a canon of St. Peter's, this is the best medieval guide to the city and an important source for the location of its medieval churches and ancient monuments.

In the twelfth century the inhabited part of Rome, the abitato, as it was called, was a small city tucked into the bend of the Tiber River in the midst of the ruins of the great ancient city. The walls and gates of the ancient city were still in place, and between them and the abitato were fields where the animals grazed among the temples and baths. This edition contains the full text of the Marvels, a detailed Gazetteer identifying all the sites mentioned and providing full bibliographical and topographical references, a new introduction, 5 maps, bibliography, and index. 2nd ed., illustrated.

From the Publisher:

In the twelfth century the inhabited part of Rome was a small city tucked into the bend of the Tiber River in the midst of the ruins of the great ancient city. The abitato, as it was called, extended primarily along the left bank of the river between the Ponte Sant' Angelo and the Tiber Island. The walls and gates of the ancient city were still in place, and between them and the abitato were fields where the animals grazed among the temples and baths, and where monastic houses, great churches, and noble palaces maintained large vineyards, gardens, and farms.

About the Author:

On April 19, 2005, CARDINAL JOSEPH RATZINGER was elected POPE BENEDICT XVI and became the 264th successor to Peter as the "Vicar of Jesus Christ." He may well be the most accomplished theologian to be elected Pope in modern times. Beginning in 1981 he spent over 20 years as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, a role often depicted as the "defender of the faith." Cardinal Ratzinger was also President of the Pontifical Biblical Commission and of the Preparatory Commission that codified the new "Catechism of the Catholic Church," published in 1994.
