In 1833 Geramb left France for Rome where he held the office of procurator-general of La Trappe . He soon gained the esteem and affection of Gregory XVI, and although Geramb was not a priest, Gregory named him titular abbot with the insignia of the ring and pectoral cross, a privilege without any precedent. Abbot de Geramb was the author of many works, the principal of which are: "Letters to Eugene on the Eucharist"; " Eternity is approaching"; "Pilgrimage to Jerusalem"; "A Journey from La Trappe to Rome. " His style is easy and without affectation. The customs, manners, and incidents of the journey are all vividly described, and the topographical descriptions are extremely accurate.
