Ever wonder what it was like to go on pilgrimage in the Middle Ages? Check out Rome 1300 for an inkling.
In the year MM, Pope John Paul II declared a Jubilee. Herbert Kessler describes the first millennial Jubilee, the year M, declared by Pope Boniface VIII. Follow in the footsteps of the 200,000 pilgrims who inundated Rome. See the sites and sights they saw, many of which are still extant, and view the artifacts, relics, churches, chapels, and other holy places that were their guarantee to salvation. Fantastic illustrations accompany the fascinating text.
