On a research trip to Rome in 2002 I grabbed these pictures on my trusty Canon AE-1 camera. Developed them and scanned them (before our phones became our cameras!), and posted them here. The trip to Roccasecca was courtesy of Stephen Brock and Kevin Flannery. Wow.
During a frenzied four days in February, 2005, I went to Bologna to participate in a conference on Dominican education at the University of Bologna. What an intense visit; I spent the whole four days in about a five-block area, drinking in deeply the Church of Saint Dominic, Dominic's tomb, and the display of the place's relics (including an autograph of St. Thomas, and one of his fingers [!!!]).
