Highly illustrated, this title in the Alpha Holy Cities series offers clear and simple information on the important religious city of Rome. Giving a brief history of this fascinating city, the book looks at how Rome was once home of the Roman gods within a vast and powerful empire. It goes on to look at the city's social, economic and cultural developments and the role of its spiritual leaders to explain how Rome is now at the heart of the largest Christian Church in the world: the Roman Catholic Church.
