Photos: S. Maria Maggiore II

Detail of a praesepio (manger scene) by Arnolfo di Cambio in the museum beneath the Basilica (Hey, being a seminarista gets me discounted admission of 2€!).

Vestments worn by Bl. Pope Pius IX.

My favorite: a receipt showing amounts paid to Giovanni Luigi da Palestrina, once a musician at the Basilica!

Loved the photo of the receipt book. Can I convert the values in to 2005 dollars? (Grin).
