Santa Pudenziana

The basilica of Santa Pudenziana in Rome, Italy

According to legend, St Peter lived in the house of the senator Pudens and converted his host as well as his daughters Pudentiana and Praxedis to Christianity. A church was erected above this house under Pope Siricius (384-399); the apse decorated with mosaics has been preserved.

Santa Pudenziana's 12th-century façade ivas restored and largely rebuilt in the 19th century, but the beautiful frieze around the doorway is a medieval original

The original structure has been modified through several restorations; the bell tower was added in the 13th century. The monumental apse mosaic from the late 4th century depicts the enthroned Christ with St Peter, St Paul, St Praxedis and St Pudentia before the gates of Jerusalem. A late antique cameo cross and the four symbols of the evangelists, angel, lion, bull and eagle, appear in the heavens.

St. Peter is said to have lived in the Pudens household for seven years, and the church’s other prize is part of a table he is thought to have used as an altar for Mass.
