My classes each had a field study on Tuesday.  First, to the Roman Forum for my Jews of Rome class, and next to Santa Croce and St. John Lateran for my Catholicism class.  It was an exciting day, but I didn’t dress warmly enough so by the time we were in the church I was freezing and my hands were purple.  I had to stop taking pictures in the Church because I couldn’t feel my hands, so sorry for shakey camera-work.

Santa Croce. One of the best churches so far, but pictures weren’t allowed. Here I saw the most legitimate relic of the true cross; it is the sign hanging above Jesus which St. Helena (Constantine’s mother) acquired from Israel after Constantine issued the Edict of Milan, so all Christians loved her and would want to give her things that Jesus touched.
