  • Little known but definitely worth nota.assolutamente to see. Inserted in the particular context of the Verano 'it to visit too.
  • About1550, the headless statue of a seated Wgure was discovered near the Church of San Lorenzo fuori le Mura, in the suburbs of Rome.8 Inscribed in Greek characters on a plinth on the rear of the chair is a list of writings. These include a work ‘On the Psalms' , ‘On John the Evangelist and the Apocalypse' , a ‘Chronicle to the Greeks' , an ‘Apostolic Tradition' , and a ‘Demonstration of the dates of Easter in Tabular Form' . On the right side of the chair there is a heading above a 16-year table of Paschal full moons. On the left side of the chair there is a 112-year list of dates for Easter Sunday, under the heading, ‘First year of Alexander Caesar: the Sundays of the Pascha year by year: points indicate the bissextum.' The inscriptions belong paleographically to the Wrst half of the third century (Brent 1995: 3–4). At the head of the 16-year table the inscription reads: In the Wrst year of the Roman emperor Alexander Severus, the 14th of the Paschal moon fell on Saturday, the Ides of April, during an embolismic month. For the succeeding years it will be as indicated in the table below. Events of the past were as noted. One must break the fast when Sunday comes
  • A very historical basilica but need restoration especially the tomb of st laurence
  • Not as ornate as other churches in Rome, but had an interesting history and isn't crowded
  • Wonderful basilica, a magical place with a special light. One of the most beautiful basilicas in Rome. Compulsory visit. Priests funny and always sympathetic with visitors. Get on the altar and around to the entrance and you will see the most beautiful mosaic!
