Martyrs, Monks & Mystics: Italy from Early Church to the Renaissance
In partnership with Christian Journeys, Regent College is pleased to invite you on an unforgettable journey to Italy with Dr. Bruce Hindmarsh, Carolyn Hindmarsh, and Journey Director Bronwyn Spilsbury.
Beginning in ancient Rome and ending in Renaissance Florence, this journey will trace the development of Christian life through the centuries.
Behold the spectacular catacombs in Rome and learn the city’s long history. Marvel at the hilltop basilica of St. Francis in Assisi. Join pilgrims of the ages as we walk the medieval Via Francigena route through beautiful Tuscany. Pause in holy wonder at the cell of St. Catherine of Siena. Spend a timeless day in a sacred retreat. Catch a glimpse of the Florentine world of Dante, and learn how his words and wisdom shaped our faith imagination.
Through art and architecture we will witness the transformation of Christianity from a persecuted sect to the centrepiece of high medieval civilization. In community we ask: what can we learn for our age?
