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, March 19

Across the transcept from the chapel of the Corporal is the famous Brizio Chapel - filled to the brim with beautiful frescoes, begun by Fra Angelico and finished by Signorelli. It has a very Dantesque feel to it, with every panel depicting something to do with the Last Judgement. There are some pretty graphic displays here of the horrors of hell and of the terrors of the AntiChrist on the last days!

A wonderful Internet resource with images from the chapel is available here (scroll down about halfway) and here! Check it out, please!
