The Path to Rome

Hilaire Belloc’s famous book The Path to Rome records both a physical and spiritual journey to the heart of Christendom for it gives expression and relates purpose to things far deeper than the physical experience of a mere travelogue.

Considered by Belloc as his greatest work it is a profound record of the walking pilgrimage that he undertook to the Eternal City in order to fulfill a vow he had made, and to travel through great chunks of Europe that the Christian Faith had saved, shaped and blessed.

The Path to Rome calls everyone in this world without exception. But when heading towards Rome one must set out with the right intentions or it will end very badly in this life or the next.
