POMPEII, Italy - Pope John Paul II visited a shrine and prayed for world peace here yesterday, completing the final part of his travel schedule for the year. He spoke in relatively strong tones, allaying some concerns about his health. Slumped in his throne, a posture that has become familiar over recent months, the 83-year-old pope initially garbled the words of his prayers and had trouble finding his place in his text, some lines of which he skipped. He grew more expressive throughout the nearly three-hour ceremony in front of one of the world's most important shrines to the rosary, made a forceful appeal for peace and toward the end delivered impromptu remarks.

At some point, a band eyeing pop ubiquity must make a late-night stop at NBC's Studio 8H in Manhattan. In January, it was the turn of Bastille - a British rock quartet riding the success of a chart-topping single called “Pompeii” - to perform on “Saturday Night Live,” and the magnitude was not lost on drummer Chris Wood.

When Mount Vesuvius violently erupted in 79 A.D., burying thousands of people under its volcanic debris, a cosmopolitan society vanished. Just like that -- gone. Pompeii. Herculaneum. Stabiae. Now, nearly 2,000 years after one of history's most storied natural disasters, Pompeii has re-emerged as a cultural zeitgeist. Filmmaker Roman Polanski will begin shooting the movie Pompeii, based on Robert Harris' best-selling thriller of the same name, in Italy this summer. A year ago, Smithsonian magazine weighed in with a cover story on the ancient city, paying homage to the remarkable traveling exhibition, Pompeii: Stories from an Eruption.

Designers don't vacation like the rest of us. They vacation with purpose. For these artists, travel is not just a buying trip, but an essential element of inspiration.

Pompeii, by Robert Harris. Random House. 304 pages. $24.95. Robert Harris has made a specialty of ushering readers deep into worlds that they can no longer -- or never could -- visit. In Fatherland, he created a chilling vision of Nazi Germany as it might have existed in the 1960s, had Hitler's army survived the Russian Front. In Enigma, he re-created the claustrophobic pressure cooker of wartime Eng-land's Bletchley Park, where hundreds of cryptographers worked frantically to break Ger-many's military codes.

"Chaos! Chaos!" bellowed toga-clad Kyle Rose, 13, performing on-stage at the University of Maryland Baltimore County yesterday in his middle school's shorthand version of the destruction of Pompeii.It's true, the Catonsville campus was aswarm with nearly 1,500 Maryland youths from kindergarten through high school for the state finals of the IBM-sponsored "Odyssey of the Mind" competition.But this kind of chaos makes teachers and parents smile, as their kids slugged it out in such creativity-challenging events as the Pompeii play, flinging tennis balls at targets with homemade catapults and building small balsa-wood structures to withstand hundreds of pounds.

Baltimore looks pretty good in a Hollywood film that gets a repeat screening tonight, while political pundits face off on PBS over the question of curbing immigration.* "He Said, She Said" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- The romantic comedy had its world premiere at the Senator Theater in Baltimore in February 1991, and co-star Kevin Bacon was in attendance.

NEW YORK -- Faced with the most daunting task of their careers yesterday, religious leaders in and around New York tried to give solace to the inconsolable and make sense of the death and destruction that have dominated the lives of all Americans, especially those closest to the World Trade Center tragedy. Houses of worship in and around the nerve center of devastation have been flooded with the religious and nonreligious, all searching for answers through the teachings of Christianity, Islam and Judaism.
