The Epistles of St. Clement of Rome and St. Ignatius of Antioch by Clement of RomeThis is a book combining epistles of two saints, written pretty close to each other (years 96 and 110). I mainly bought this for the Ignatius letters, but it is interesting to read both writers, and compare a little. Clement writes a corrections letter full of quotes and somewhat not-personal. His letter was also something I didnt gain much out of, mainly just a historical view.
Ignatius writes during two city stops while being taken to Rome from Antioch, about to be martyred, which shows clearly in his letters - personal and want to say everything type. He also stresses the importance of fighting heretic thoughts, mainly Donatism (denying Christs humanity) here. Clements letter is fairly long, Ignatiuss are short but sentences are fully packed with meaning; his are also personal enough to show some light on his personality.
The notes after the letters explain some things and also show what challenges some words are to the translator of these texts. The letters of Ignatius also have the first appearance of some words (some outside the New Testament use) that we use today, like Christians/Christianity (terms created by the Antiochian community), and Catholic Church (in the universal sense).
These letters (including Clements) are great, both in historical and in religious sense; they are a good glimpse to see what it was like when Christs death was still under 100 years ago, and the death of the last apostle (John) was still fairly recent (and Ignatius quotes him).
St. Ignatius of Loyola Church in Rome, Italy
Chiesa di Sant'Ignazio di Loyola, Rome
The Church of St. Built in Baroque style between and , the church functioned originally as the chapel of the adjacent Roman College , that moved in to a new larger building and was renamed the Pontifical Gregorian University.

In , Vittoria della Tolfa,  Marchesa della Valle, donated her family isola , an entire city block and its existing buildings, to the Society of Jesus in memory of her late husband the Marchese della Guardia Camillo Orsini , founding the Collegio Romano. Although the Jesuits got the marchesa's land, they did not get any money from her for completing the church. Budgetary restraints compelled them to hire their own architect.
The large fresco of the Vault shows Saint Ignatius of Loyola surrounded by angels, bringing grace to the ends of the world. Jesuit artist Andrea Pozzo creates a fake architectural work which gives an amazing optical Illusion effect. The side altars house the tombs of three major saints of the Society of Jesus. Every day, the burials are visited by hundreds of pilgrims. In particular, the apse depicts the vision of La Storta Rome.
The huge fresco by Andrea Pozzo across the barrel vaulted nave celebrates the works of Saint Ignatius and the Society of Jesus by depicting the Saint being welcomed into heaven by the Virgin Mary and Jesus. The vaulting, however, appears to to continue high in the blue sky through a fascinating adn well organised projection of perspective. The cuppola, although intended, was never built and Andrea Pozzo supplied a canvas painting which projected the cuppola where it was supposed to be. This, however, had to be replaced in after it was destroyed. Italy - 5 great restaurants - Recommended places to stay dine in Rome, Florence and Venice.

Upon recommendation from clergy we know in our home parish in the USA, we made it a point to visit the church to see its beautiful interior featuring breathtaking architecture and painted walls with figures appearing three-dimensional on the ceilings. Photos without flash are permitted, It is on a small piazza just a short walk from Trevi but quite beautiful. Our group of 8 were really just wandering along when we came across this church.

On your way from Piazza Venezia to St. The church was built in after St. Ignatius of Loyola. The church was decorated with one precise message: The name of Jesus as the synthesis of the way to be in intimacy with the Lord. The painting above the tomb portrays Jesus Christ giving the flag of his mission to Ignatius. This represents the evangelization of the announcement of the Gospel as the continuation of the Incarnation. This repetition of St.
