Description

I conducted a WorldCat search for this book on November 18, 2012 and found only 15 libraries in the world that had a copy of this 1905 1st edition of this work.

J. B. Wilson, in addition to being an M. D., was President of the National Liberal Party and American Delegate to the First International Freethought Congress which convened at Rome on September 21, 1904.

Reading this book will mightily contribute to the loss of your intellectual virginity for, as the author reminds us (p. 139), that a trip to Rome yields the following proverb: "Rome seen, faith lost."

In addition to the much too incredible list of relics, claims of miracles, and other so-called unbelieveable facts, the author provides the reader with a creditable history of the Church of Rome.

"It is an account of travel and personal experiences that has received an universal encomium from press and people. In it religious dogmas and tales of priestly fiction are ruthlessly exposed while the general style is without comparison in American literature of travel." From the Blue Grass Blade, March 1, 1908.

Perhaps the most amusing incident occurs in his description of the events when he was being shown the stone on which Jesus appeared to St. Paul. He asked the monk, who was showing the visiting crowd "the footprints of our Lord," the following question: "Now your reverence, please tell me just how much a ghost has to weigh, to leave an impression of its feet an inch deep, in a hard marble slab?"
