    Anyone know what the first picture is telling us and where the tablet is located in Rome? I would like to find out the story behind it

  2. Santi Silvestro e Martino ai Monti

  3. JEF5570 says:

    It’s a list of all the saints whose relics were moved there from the catacombs. I don’t think they’re still there though. This monument is located in the crypt beneath the high altar of the church and when I was there in April it was being used as a storage area for Christmas knick-knacks. It’s a church definitely worth exploring, though. There’s another level down from the crypt that leads to what was once the street level during Imperial times. It’s accessible if you have a good flashlight and the attitude that it’s better to ask forgiveness than permission, bearing in mind that even down there it’s still a consecrated place. Also, I’m pretty sure there are ghosts down there.

    Wow. Thank you JEF5570 for those details.

  5. The Vicar says:

    This is a Roman station church for Lent and a basilica.

    I recall one of the station churches had lower levels, one had two lower tiers of churches. The one church charged admission. When I balked the response was, “I don’t care if you are a cardinal, you pay to go downstairs”
