Sant' Onofrio: Journeying to a Citadel of Faith
Publication Date: July 26, 2021
From the Preface:
The Renaissance was a time of realization, continuity and rebirth that began in fifteenth-century Italy. The name Renaissance or Classical is given to that manner of building and style of ornament which is an adaptation of the models of ancient Greece and Rome. These ancient classical models helped influence the new architecture and painting of Sant'Onofrio. It is my hope this little book will inspire you, dear pilgrim, and help create a conversation among other pilgrims to venture off the beaten path to explore Sant'Onofrio, a rare legacy of the Italian Renaissance. For the pilgrim visiting Rome, as many of you do with some frequency, I recommend you make time to visit, perhaps in conjunction with a leisurely afternoon stroll on the beautiful Janiculum Hill.
