Il battistero, ubicato tra Padula e Sala Consilina, è uno scrigno di storia, di cultura e di religiosità. Il battistero è infatti l'unico al mondo che utilizza l'acqua battesimale attingendola diretta... more »The baptistery, located between P and Sala Consilina, is a treasure trove of history, culture and religion. The baptistery is in fact the only one in the world that uses the baptismal water spring from which it flows directly from attingendola and dates back to the early centuries of Christianity. It was built in an area already considered sacred in ancient times for the presence of a source dedicated to pagan cult of the nymph Leucothea. The oldest part of the structure is sure to find where is the tub (baptismal) in which they plunged the catechumens to receive baptism. Altte structures and buildings are of later periods, such as the portico, and are the result of adaptations and additions arranged by those who, like the Templars, the salian, and local clergy, have over the centuries used this architectural complex. Among the plaster burned off from wear and tear and cracked one can see fragments of frescoes depicting the evangelists and a theory solemn and composed of figures of Saints. The baptistery of Marcellianus, also called "San Giovanni in Fonte", was erected in the century IV d.C. is an ancient early Christian baptistery founded by Pope Marcellus I on a pre-existing pagan temple.

An ancient building that evokes the ancient rite of baptism, looking the crystal clear water that invades looks forward to seeing the first Christians through immersion. pity that the educational signs are ruining and that's the only reason I didn't give it top marks.
"La nostra vita è foglia e tronco, polla d’acqua, schiuma d’onda." Entrando in questo luogo si scopre una sintesi di misticità classica :divinità dell'acqua e culto cristiano della fonte. Suggestivo b... more »"Our life is water, leaf and stem, fowl foam wave." By entering this site you find a synthesis of classical:d ivinità mystique of the water and Christian worship of the source. Suggestive baptistery where architecture and nature come together in ancestral silence of a magical place. absolutely worth visiting.
