Sacred Places: What Gave London, Paris, and Florence Their Allure?

April 27 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM


Some places are famously known as sacred. Rome had deep religious significance even before Christianity, and Constantinople was founded as a new Rome. Canterbury and Santiago de Compostela are notable pilgrimage sites. But even cities and towns that we may not think of so readily as sacred—Prague, Bruges, Nuremberg, London, Paris, Florence, and many others—were also at some point in their development wrapped in a mantle of holiness.
