Overview

The photographs selected for this volume were personally taken by the author, and others are used by permission. There is very little available to English readers on the subject of early and medieval baptisteries and fonts. In some instances, archaeologists were interviewed who excavated and restored the sites.

After completing research at the Bibliotecha Apostolica Vaticana in Rome and at the American Academy Library in Rome, the author planned the itinerary for visiting the sites. Listed in alphabetical order by city, the largest number of early baptismal basins is found in Italy with a sampling from other countries.

The mysterious basin in the floor of Saint Peter's basilica in Rome and the first century pool near San Eustorgio in Milan, are notable examples that have not been described in English sources.
