CCR Walks: the Sancta Sanctorum - March 17, 2012

The Sancta Sanctorum - or "holy of holies" - is a Papal chapel only open through special appointment. Holding many hallowed and venerated relics, its most important features, however, are its wonderful mosaics and frescoes, rarely seen in their entirety by pilgirms flocking to St. John Lateran. Their unique style and iconography helps us reconstruct the early days of 13th century humanism in Rome. 

When: Saturday, March 17, 2012
Time: 10 a.m.
Where: meet in Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano, in front of the main entrance to the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano. 
Cost: Special offer to be announced; normal pricing €10 CCR members, €15 non-members
RSVP: by March 12, 2012
