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!

Friday, February 17

We finally made it up the Aventine hill, and came to Santa Sabina's, the famed Dominican church and where St. Dominic stayed himself while in Rome. These are the famous wood-carved holy doors of the church, with amazing depictions of various Biblical scenes - of special note is the one in the far upper left (which is utterly impossible to see here, sorry, you'll have to go there yourself!) that shows the crucifixion of Christ, the oldest of its kind the guidebook said.
