  • This is one of many "minor" churches of Rome, but at the same time, has its own "big story". Built around the fifth century. on the ruins of an ancient temple dedicated to Neptune had various deep transformations and early 1500, within the urban rearrangement of via Giulia ordered by Pope Julius II, was in danger of being demolished to make way for a large building, designed by Bramante , which was to house the courts and prisons. The shipyard began but then, due to the death of the Pope, the work stopped at a base of marble Ashlar blocks, which can still be seen. The Church, in its present form, dates from the rebuilding of 1730 to the architect Giovanni Antonio Perfetti. In 1832 Pope Gregory XVI gave to the Armenian community of Rome which made a restoration/rehabilitation, indoor, to adapt it to the Armenian Rite. On the front there is a fresco depicting Saint Blaise, Bishop and martyr of Sebaste. Classroom with a single nave marked by giant pilasters on the walls. Left aisle with icon of Mary S.S. di Ripalta mail to devotion of citizens of Cerignola-residents in Rome. In the altar on the right, consecrated to the Holy Guardian Angels, painting of Saint Gregory the Illuminator who baptizes the first Christians of Armenia. Above the door of the sacristy fresco depicting the Madonna delle Grazie believed to be miraculous. The sanctuary contains the major works of adaptation to the Armenian Rite are characterised by a high basement called "bema" accessed by two small lateral staircases. The presbytery is separated from the rest of the House, by a large arch supported by two ionic columns. During celebrations in the Armenian Rite, in the sanctuary, a large tent is closed in some liturgical moments, hiding the officiants of the mass. On the bottom of the apse, over the high altar, is a painting of Saint Blaise the Bishop by the painter Annibale Mazzuoli. The Saint is celebrated on 3 February with masses in Latin Rite and Armenian. The latter are characterized by the anointing and blessing of the throat with two lighted candles and crossed. The name "loaf" is derived from the traditional offering of blessed bread which was distributed to the faithful during the feast of 3 February.

  • It is one of many churches lined up on via Giulia also called san Biagio to loaf, named due to the distribution of bread to the poor that always takes place on the day of the feast of the 3-02. The Tiber flooded periodically when left on the road and in front of the church a layer of sand and silt which dried out by giving its name to the seccuta. The Church was restored in 1972 and preserves the relic of san Biagio that tapping with hands a throat recaptured the plug, was entrusted to the Hospice of the Armenians in 1836

  • I have always had a special place in my heart for San Biagio (St. Blaise). He is the patron saint of throat disease, and my daughter had thyroid cancer. We have prayed to God and St. Blaise a lot. Thi...  more »

  • This is a pretty little church owned by the Armenian Catholics, but the interior is the result of a neo-Baroque remodelling in 1832 before they took over in 1856. Hence, don't expect it to look like an Armenian church. The liturgy is very well celebrated, but times of opening seem to be irregular.
