English Hospice in Rome

John Allen (Editor)

To mark the sexcentenary in 1962, the student at the English College in Rome produced a special edition of the house magazine, The Venerabile, which looked in depth at the early history of the institution from the foundation in 1362 to the transformation into the English College in 1579.  Long out of print this volume provided an invaluable introduction to the study of the English community in Rome during this early period, so a facsimile edition, with a new introduction by a leading scholar, Dr Margaret Harvey, should be especially welcome.  The story of the English Hospice and the foundation of the College is part of the heritage of all Catholics in England and Wales.
