How did early Christian Rome deal with the fact that Christ was never there? Sacred Stimulus is about the effect Jerusalem had on the formulation of Christian art in Rome during the fourth and fifth centuries. It deals with the visual Christianization of Rome from an almost neglected perspective: not in comparison to pagan art in Rome, not as reflecting the struggle with Constantinople, but rather as visual expressions of the idea of Jerusalem and its holy sites and traditions.
