Santi Nereo e Achilleo is a fourth-century basilica church in Rome, Italy, located in via delle Terme di Caracalla in the rione Celio facing the main entrance to the Baths of Caracalla. The current Cardinal Priest of the Titulus Ss. Nerei et Achillei is Theodore Edgar McCarrick.HistoryA 337 epitaph inscription in the Basilica di San Paolo fuori le Mura celebrates the late Cinnamius Opas, lector of a church known as Titulus Fasciolae; the name has traditionally been explained as the place where St. Peter lost the foot bandage (fasciola) that wrapped the wounds caused by his chains, on his way to escape the Mamertine Prison. In the acts of the synod of Pope Symmachus, in 499, the Titulus Fasciolae is recorded as served by five priests. This same building is recorded as titulus Sanctorum Nerei et Achillei in 595; therefore the dedications to Saints Nereus and Achilleus, two soldiers and martyrs of the 4th century, must date to the sixth century.In 814, Pope Leo III rebuilt the old titulus. In the 13th century the relics of the two martyrs were transferred from the Catacomb of Domitilla to the Sant'Adriano, whence they were transferred to this church by Cardinal Baronius.Plan to see Chiesa dei Santi Nereo e Achilleo and other attractions that appeal to you using our Rome trip itinerary builder website.

カラカラ浴場からほど近いところにある、かわいらしい教会です。全体が土色で地味な感じですが、壁にうっすらと文様が描かれていて趣を感じさせます。大きな通りに面して建っているので、道路を渡った先から見れば緑に囲まれた教会全体が眺められます。 more »It is a lovely church located near the Caracara Baths. The whole is a touch of earth, but the pattern is drawn on the wall and makes you feel the atmosphere. It is built facing a large street, so you can see the whole church surrounded by greenery from across the road.
