The original essays in this volume build upon Thomas F.X. Noble’s interest in Rome, especially his landmark contributions to the origins of the Papal States and early medieval image controversies, thus providing a panoramic and interdisciplinary exploration of Rome and religious culture. Drawing upon a wide range of sources, including manuscripts, relics, historical and normative texts, theological tracts, and poetry, the authors illuminate the complexities of medieval Christianity and deepen scholarly appreciation of Rome in the rich and varied religious culture of the medieval world.
