Roma felix : formation and reflections of medieval Rome

Explores ways in which Rome itself was preserved, envisioned, and transformed by its residents, and also by the many pilgrims who flocked to the shrines of the martyrs. This book considers how northern European cultures (in particular, the Irish and English) imagined and imitated the city as they understood it.
