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!

Tuesday, February 28

View of one side - the arch mosaic shows both the Hospitality of Abraham and the Sacrifice of Isaac... There are also depictions of Moses and Jeremiah the prophet, and above them the Gospel evangelists (the Christian Church built upon the foundations and revelation of the Jewish faith). I wish I had time to go into the symbolism and placement of Biblical images throughout all the mosaics, but alas... If you like what little you see here, go search out more info on Ravenna and it's churches!
