Rome, the "Eternal City, " has provided endless inspiration for religious thinkers, poets, artists and philosophers. Jonathan Boardman uncovers Rome's multifaceted experience, where each layer of development rests upon the foundation of a pre-existing tradition. He also highlights a vibrant popular culture -- from gladiatorial shows to the local Roma-Lazio soccer derby.
