🇮🇹 All’epoca della repubblica, uno dei più alti onori che il senato romano potesse conferire a un generale vittorioso era quello di consentirgli di celebrare la vittoria con una costosa processione di trionfo. Le processioni romane si snodavano lentamente lungo la Via Triumphalis e percorrevano la tortuosa salita che portava al tempio di Giove in Campidoglio.
Mentre la processione attraversava la città di Roma, la popolazione lanciava fiori davanti al carro del vincitore, e il profumo dell’incenso che bruciava si diffondeva lungo tutto il percorso. Quell’odore soave significava onori e una vita più agiata per i soldati vittoriosi, mentre per i prigionieri non graziati che sarebbero stati giustiziati alla fine della processione era presagio di morte.
Questo aiuta a capire l’applicazione spirituale che Paolo fa dell’illustrazione riportata in 2 Corinti 2:14-16

🇬🇧 In the days of the Roman republic, one of the highest honors the Senate could bestow upon a conquering general was to allow him to celebrate his victory with a costly procession of triumph. The Roman procession moved slowly along Via Triumphalis and up the winding ascent to the temple of Jupiter atop Capitoline Hill.
As the procession passed through the city of Rome, the populace threw flowers before the victor’s chariot, and burning incense perfumed the entire route. This sweet fragrance signified honors and a more secure life for the victorious soldiers. But it signified death to the unpardoned captives who would be executed at the end of the procession. This throws light on Paul’s spiritual application of the illustration at 2 Corinthians 2:14-16 W 90 7/15 •••

🇮🇹 Rome ‘18 • SEE THE FULL PICTURE 👉🏻🏛👉🏻
.
Remember my post yesterday? Me jumping for joy? Well this view right here is the reason why. When we booked a tour of the Colosseum we were gutted to have missed out on the underground tour which everyone talks about. Instead we opted for the Belvedere tour. All I will say is this is NOT to be missed. Just look at how amazing the view is over the Colosseum, away from the crowds. You can really imagine what it used to be like (oddly in what would have been the cheap seats!) 🏛🔥👀
