Rome : apud Antonium Bladum Asulanum

Description

Typical of a whole class of spiritual guides to Rome, this little volume lists the holy sights and quantifies the redemptive value of visiting each in terms of indulgences and remission of sins. If one had only a limited time to spend in Rome, such a guide no doubt repaid its modest purchase price many times over.
