The author journeys through Rome, following biblical events and themes in works of art, and touches on many themes on the way, including violence and power (at the Colosseum), social injustice (at St. Mary Major) and motherhood (at the icon of Our Lady in Perpetual Succour).
In this original book, the author journies through Rome, following biblical events and themes in works of art: from Genesis in the Sistine Chapel, through Incarnation in the Pantheon and Resurrection in Michaelangelo's Last Judgement.She touches on many themes in her journey, including violence and power (at the Colloseum), social injustice (at St. Mary Major) and motherhood (at the icon of Our Lady in Perpetual Succour).Writing as an intelligent Christian feminist, Beattie doesn't resort to clichTs, and has a clear, elegant style which makes this a very readable book.
