The Roamin' Roman

Benvenuto! You have happened upon the blog of a wandering Catholic American college student studying for a year in Rome, the Eternal City. You will find here my pontifications, ruminations, reflections, images, and ponderings on my life in Rome. Ciao!

Sunday, January 15

The Dominican church - the last place where St. Thomas Aquinas stayed before he left on his final journey, dying in the Cistercian abbey of Fossanova in France on the way to the Council of Lyon.

    Erm, I think you mean Fossanova in Italy. It's south of Rome.

    Yeah, yeah yeah - multiple people have kindly enlightened me on that. :) So how did his body end up in Toulouse then??

    According to this, his remains eventually made their way to Toulouse because it was the 'cradle of the Order'.
