Explores an ancient Christian church designated to St. Agnes lying outside Rome, focusing on the stories, symbolism, and rituals that make up the church, and providing details about mythology, history, and theology.

Margaret Visser's desire to find answers to her own questions -- as a traveler, a believer, and an insatiable "anthropologist of everyday life" -- led her to undertake this unique and revelatory book. Guiding the reader through a church outside Rome, Sant'Agnese fuori le Mura, she draws upon history, theology, anthropology, and folklore to illuminate the spiritual meanings embedded in its architecture.
