      Explore some of the history of Christianity in Ancient Rome on this private tour to some of the city’s many churches. Learn about the time that St Peter and St Paul spent in Rome, including their imprisonment during the reign of Roman Emperor Nero; visit the Basilica of St Sabina, an early Christian landmark; and see the Basilica of St Paul Outside the Walls, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The book groups articles according to political history, intellectual and social developments, the impact of the emperor, art, and literature, and concludes with an appendix by L. Michael White on.

The subject of these lectures is in one sense a well-worn theme. The literature bearing upon the history of the Church in Rome during the first century is enormous, and unfortunately in modem times the prevailing note has been controversial.
