Rome lies at the heart of the Christian faith being the place where the two great apostles, Peter and Paul, both taught and died. Since the sixth century AD, books have been written about this wonderful city with the aim of encouraging pilgrims to come and draw spiritual strength from its history, culture and worship. One of the aims of this travel guide is to convey something of the challenge and inspiration of the early Christian communities of Rome.
