  • Proceeding to the left, behind Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano, after the Church of the Holy steps, we reach the basilica of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme. Tradition says that the mother of Emperor Constantine, Saint Helena led, after returning from a trip to the Holy Land, in 325 ad, the land of Mount Calvary, which was placed in the foundations and many relics: fragments of the cross, the Crown of thorns, a nail; all relics surely there since the 4th century AD. As far as the Titulus Cruci, i.e. the wooden board on which was written the reason for the condemnation of Jesus Christ, was found walled up in a niche of the basilica in 1492, perhaps hidden in ancient times to prevent theft or profanation. Adjacent to the chapel of the relics you can see a modern reproduction, life-size, of the Holy Shroud, held in Turin. Seeing the mosaics behind the high altar, a wonderful blue.
