Last fall 2014, students in a seminar on the Cult of Saints studied the veneration of Mary and other holy men and women from Early Christianity through the Middle Ages in history, culture, and theology; and they integrated these studies with their own experience by developing a modern, digitally accessible “Pilgrim’s Guide & Map” to places and artworks honoring Mary in Washington, D.C today. For this collaborative handbook, students compiled studies of the history, symbolism, artistic qualities and devotional significance of many beautiful Marian sites, including The Holy Rosary Church on Third Street NW, the Mary Garden on the grounds of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and the Chapel of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in the main church of the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America.
