“delightfully illustrated, packed with
fascinating information, and handsomely produced”
one of the most magical places in the world: the burial-ground which
used to be known as the Cimitero degli Inglesi, but, filled as it is
by many dead bodies of other than English origins, is now known as
the ‘Non-Catholic Cemetery’ (Cimitero Acattolico). [… ] The author,
Stanley-Price, is a member of the Cemetery’s Advisory Committee, and
edits the Newletter of the Friends of the Cemetery. He has done a splendid
job, and his book is delightfully illustrated (sometimes in colour),
packed with fascinating information, and handsomely produced. My only
quibble is regret it could not have been published as a hardback, as
the contents deserve something more substantial than thin card (albeit

The guide-history written by Stanley-Price is a gem. It ranks with
the late Leonard Boyle’s book on the Basilica of San Clemente as one
of the best books in Rome dedicated to a single site. Wonderful work!

Go thou to Rome
I was in Rome in September re-visiting the Cemetery and was pleased to find that a new book about the cemetery by Nicholas Stanley-Price has recently been published. In it Mr Stanley-Price charts the history of the cemetery from the first known burial on 1716 through to the present day and the vision of the trustees for its future. The book is extremely informative and readable, lavishly illustrated in colour with maps, prints and paintings, many of which have not previously been published, and photographs of many of the memorials. It charts the origins and expansion of the cemetery, gives accounts of some of the funerals and burials of the people who came to Rome, many for the benefit of their health, who died there and are buried in the cemetery.

Roma, il Cimitero protestante in un libro
più lo conoscono solo per la presenza dei celebri monumenti
ai poeti Percy Shelley e John Keats, ma il piccolo Cimitero Acattolico

Book review: The Non-Catholic Cemetery in Rome
Three centuries of history are skilfully recounted in this new book by
historian Nicholas Stanley-Price. The author sheds light on many
little known aspects of this unique site – its foundation on unconsecrated
land outside the city walls to contain the remains of non-Catholic
foreigners, like Protestant members of the exiled Stuart court in Rome
and aristocrats who died during their Grand Tour, insights into the
lives and personalities of many of the people buried there, the difficulties
of maintenance and restoration and its present management organization.
