Professor Lisa Passaglia Bauman, an art historian at George Mason University, uses the theme and the path of the Lenten stational churches to weave together Christian thought and Lenten practice with art history, a pilgrimage that provides a living connection to the history of Rome itself.
In the 40 days leading up to Easter, Rome becomes the site of a city-wide pilgrimage. Each day the Christian faithful make their way to a different church to visit shrines of the apostles and martyrs, following a route and a liturgy that was established more than 1,500 years ago.
