The Early Modern Invention Of Late Antique Rome

Sobre o livro
How did corpses come to be considered holy in Roman Catholicism? And when? This book considers Rome as a case study, revising the idea that the 'corporeal turn' characterized the centuries after Constantine, locating it instead in early modern attitudes toward death, antiquity, and the survival of the Church against secularism.
