lesson52 St.圣彼得大教堂   Peter's (意大利)

原文:

Fl :  Friend l       F2 :  Friend 2

 

F1: What have you got planned for the winter holidays?

F2: Actually, I'm off to Italy.

Fl: Really? I went there in 2001, will you go to the Vatican?

F2: I plan to, I think it's something that you cannot miss. It's funny, but everyone thinks. The Vatican is an ancient place, but in fact it dates back to 1929.

Fl Yes, when Mussolini and the Pope signed the Lateran Treaty. Also, it's the world's largest church.

F2: Isn't there a special place where the Pope appears, too?

F1: Yes, there's a balcony which he comes out on, but only on speall occasions.

F2: What about St. Peter's? Is it as fabulous as they say?

Fl: To be honest, it doesn't look like much from the outside, you don't appreciate its true beauty and enormity until you are inside.

F2 : It really is huge, then?

Fl: Oh my goodness! Not just huge, sensational! When you step inside you just cannot believe it, I was lost for words.

F2 : It sounds like you had a real religious experience there.

F1: Oh yes, I believe that even someone without faith couldn't fail to be touched by something higher while inside St. Peter's.

F2How big is it really? I read that the pillars inside are fifty feet across, that can't be true, can it?

F1Honestly, just wait until you are inside.  The pillars are massive, and even if there are hundreds of tourists, you never feel cramped. The atmosphere is always so light and airy.

F2Also, I read that the baldacchino is pretty big, too.

F1: Pretty big! It's more than half the size of Niagara Falls! While you are there, you cannot forget to visit the Sistine Chapel, which is very impressive.

F2: I'm guessing nothing is as impressive as St. Peter's, I can't wait to see it.


译文:

F1:朋友l          F2:朋友2

 

Fl:寒假你有什么计划呢?

F2:说实话,我准备去意大利。

F1:真的吗?2001年我去过那儿,你打算去梵蒂冈吗?

F2:我打算去,我想那里还真不能错过。有趣的是,人人都以为梵蒂冈是个古老的地方,但实际上它的历史只能追溯到1929年。

Fl:是的,它足墨索里尼和罗马教皇签署了《拉特兰教堂条约》后才建立的,它有世界上最大的教堂。

F2:那里是木是还有个教皇公开露面的特别地方?

F1:是的,是有一个教皇出来露面的阳台,但只是在一些特殊的场合用。

F2:那圣彼得教堂呢?是不是跟人们所说的一样神奇啊?

Fl:坦白地说,从外面看不出什么,直到进入里面才能欣赏到它真正的美丽和宏伟之处。

F2:它真的很大,是吧?

Fl: 哦,它不是一般地大,简直让人惊叹!你走进去时,简直没法相信,我都无法用言语表达。

F2:听起来好像你在那儿真的对宗教有不少体验。

F1:是的。我相信进了圣彼得教堂,没有人不会被它里面恢宏的气势所触动,哪怕是不信教的人。

F2:它到底有多大呢?我从书上看到说里面的柱子直径有50英尺,那不可能是真的,对吧?

F1: 真的,等你走到里头再看吧。柱子相当高大,即使里面有几百个游客,你也不会觉得拥挤。里面的气氛也总是很轻松.快活。

F2:而且我听说青铜祭台大华盖也很宏伟。

Fl: 相当大,比尼亚加拉瀑布的一半还要大。你到了那儿时,别忘了去参观一下西斯廷教堂,那也会给你留下很深刻的印象。

F2:我想没什么能比得上圣彼得大教堂给人的印像更深,我都等不及想去看了。
