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

Another neat thing about the exterior of the Cathedral are these pillasters - this one, the first of four across the lower front, is a serial depiction of the Creation account of Genesis. Of particular note are the lower two reliefs - the one on the left is God causing Adam to fall asleep, and on the right side you can see God actually pulling Eve out of Adam's side, from his rib! Pretty cool, eh?
