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!

Monday, July 10

The crypt area beneath the basilica, this is where the monks (and any guests/visitors) gather to chant the major offices of the day (Matins, Lauds, Vespers, and Compline). It is down here that the original house where Sts. Benedict and Scholastica were born, around the mid-400s!
