Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679004548, Paperback)

If you're planning on making a millennium pilgrimage to Rome, you'll need the holy scoop--a guide specializing in the Christian monuments, tombs, martyrs, saints, catacombs, mausoleums, monasteries, churches, and basilicas, plus Rome's origins, its popes, and the Vatican. Fodor's Holy Rome explains everything you'll need to know about the origins and history of the Jubilee. It contains a chronology of Roman Jubilees (from the first in 1300, through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and up to the Jubilee of Reconstruction in 1950 and the Jubilee on Television in 1975). The Christian Jubilee of Rome 2000, however, will be a bash such as has not been seen in a long time, and there's a full chapter devoted to it, with Main Jubilee Destinations--listed by basilicas, catacombs, way stations, and churches, and then plotted on a map of Rome--followed by a calendar of the Holy Year 2000, with events starting in December 1999 and running through January 2001. The text is instructive and engaging. The pictures are beautiful. The Rome Atlas in back (all 16 pages of it) is unbeatable. And the focused, thorough, well-organized information is irreplaceable. --Stephanie Gold
