In recent decades, Americans in Rome have revived an ancient Christian custom: the daily pilgrimage to dozens of Rome's most striking churches during Lent and Easter Week. Along this historical and spiritual pathway, pilgrims encounter hidden artistic wonders and treasured Christian commentaries, while also confronting the great mysteries of the Christian faith through a program of biblical and early Christian readings. The itinerary of the Roman station church pilgrimage offers Christians an opportunity to reflect on their religion and ponder the quality of their discipleship. In Roman Pilgrimage, best-selling theologian George Weigel, art historian Elizabeth Lev, and photographer Stephen Weigel guide readers along this religious and aesthetic journey with gorgeous photographs and revealing essays on the pilgrimage's art, architecture, and liturgies. A reminder of the call for renewal and conversion during each Lenten season, Roman Pilgrimage reflects on the deepest truths of Christianity and the exquisite beauty of the station churches of Rome.

Excerpt from A Roman Pilgrimage Well, I will have none of that. That is not, to my mind, a true picture of the city of Caesar and Peter, of Brutus and Borgia: so calm and inhuman a mistress would never have won the allegiance of so many periods and religions and temperaments. Rome has the allure of the mountains, the charm of the hills on which she sits, and with which she is girdled: her secret is not some thing which Swallows up the adorer, it is no Nirvana of the spirit or the mind her secret is a jewel for which her admirers must joust, and to whom she will she gives it. All roads lead to Rome yes, but you must get on to a road. And the idler, the false mystic, the Buddhist, the quietist adventures no high road: he lingers, in a keen selfishness, among the meadows of a false philosophy. All roads lead to Rome yes, but you must have the will to move, the passion to achieve, the desire to possess. All roads lead to Rome yes, whether as Christian, or as poet, or as archaeologist, or as aesthete you may go to Rome and you will then reach the treasure of the ages of the heart, the satisfaction of many needs, the solace of sorrow and the deep security of faith.

This book presents a range of case-studies of pilgrimage in Graeco-Roman antiquity, drawing on a wide variety of evidence. It rejects the usual reluctance to accept the category of pilgrimage in pagan polytheism and affirms the significance of sacred mobility not only as an important factor in understanding ancient religion and its topographies but also as vitally ancestral to later Christian practice.

Pilgrimage was an integral part of both medieval religion and medieval life, and from its origins in the fourth-century Mediterranean world it spread rapidly to Northern Europe as a pan-European devotional phenomenon. Concentrating on the medieval Latin West, this book covers the period spanning the growth in pilgrimage during the seventh century to the Protestant Reformation in the 16-century, when pilgrimage ceased to be a vital part of European Christian culture. It draws extensively upon original source materials accounts of pilgrimage, guidebooks, chronicles, wills, covert memos, and state documents, thereby seeking to uncover the motives of the pilgrims themselves as well as details of and attitudes towards their preparations, journeys, shrines, and eventual destinations (particularly Jerusalem, Compostela, and Rome).

The pilgrimage that I took this time was with Pilgrim Tours, and it began with a cruise on the Celestyal Olympia in the Mediterranean Sea. Sailing on the ancient sea made me think of the voyage that Odysseus took back home after the Trojan War, and it also made me think of the missionary journeys that Apostle Paul took as he embarked on the mission to bring the Christian gospel to the Greco-Roman world. This was, after all, a "traveling in the footsteps of St. Paul" trip, even though some of the places were not where he walked or taught. Nevertheless, they were places that were important in the wider context of understanding the Greco-Roman world that he was a part of. The first stop on the journey was at Mykonos, the island of the wind and windmills. The second stop--Ephesus--was an archaeological site where the ancient Temple of Artemis (Diana) stood. Patmos, the island of the Apocalypse, was where the dramatic unveiling of the book of Revelation was envisioned by the Apostle John in a natural cave. Crete, the world-renowned island of the mythical labyrinth and the Minotaur, was the center of the Minoan civilization. Santorini, also known as Thera, was, to me, the island that made me wonder about the legendary island of Atlantis. Ancient Corinth is the place where the Bible comes to life. Ancient Mycenae, although of no apparent biblical importance, is of great cultural and historical value in that it is associated with the legends of Homer. In Athens, the visit to the Parthenon atop the Acropolis is the highlight of any pilgrimage or tour. Rome, the Eternal City, is always the culmination of any pilgrimage.
