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!

Tomb of the sisters (bottom tomb). The other tombs contain "random bones", the signs on the top left by the pope at the time claims that these are tombs containing the bones of martyrs from the catacombs... however, back then they assumed that *ALL* the bones in the catacombs belonged to martyrs and saints... we know now though that this was by no means the case, so, who knows?
