Useful Info

Dedicated to the Pope who was third in succession after Saint Peter, it is one of the better preserved medieval Roman churches. Originally built in the V cent., and destroyed by the Normans in 1084 it was reconstructed in 1108 by Paschal II, on the mound of the previous edifice. (The original church had been built on ruins of the Imperial Period, and on an ancient Roman house of the Republican Period).

We enter the single aisled basilica from a side-door. The atrium, with its quadriportus is the only specimen of its kind in Rome (c. 1108). The aisles are separated by 16 Roman columns; the pavement is Cosmatesque. In the center is the beautiful Choir which had been in the lower Church. On the sides of the choir are the ambones, and a handsome Paschal candelabrum. The presbytery is separated from the choir by a screen of sculptured marble panels of the XII cent, (plutei and transenne). In the presbytery, which is above the crypt with the remains of Saint Clement, is the Tabernacle, supported by four noteworthy ancient columns of pavonazzetto. In the apse is the magnificent mosaic of the Triumph of the Cross, of the Roman school of the XII cent., radiant with colour, and harmonius in composition.

Here, the Crucifix, with 12 doves symbolizes the apostles above a multitude of persons. At the beginning of the left aisle, is the famous Chapel of Saint Catherine of Alexandria adorned with the graceful frescoes of Masolino da Panicale (1431 c), which portray: Scenes from the Lives of the Saint, and of Saint Ambrose; Crucifixion; Annunciation; Saint Christopher. From the Sacristy, we descend to the Lower Church.
