Abstract

THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE TITULUS FASCIOLAE AND ITS CONNECTION WITH POPE GREGORY THE GREAT BY JOAN M. PETERSEN Many visitors to Rome have become acquainted with the basilica of SS Nereus and Achilleus, the cemeterial church at the catacomb of Santa Domitilla, and have been intrigued by the story of its virtual disappearance in the early Middle Ages and its rediscovery by G. B. De Rossi in the 1870s. Some of them may also have found their way to the charming little church with the same dedication, which is situated in the so-called Passeggiata Archeologica, near the baths of Caracalla. There they will have been shown a marble pontifical throne upon which are carved the words: S. Gregorius hic habuit homiliam vicesimam octavam, followed by the beginning and ending of the Homily itself. It probably occurs to few of them to doubt the truth of this inscription or to speculate whether there is any connection between these two churches with the same dedication. Let us first consider the pontifical throne and its inscription. The church by the baths of Caracalla which, as we shall see shortly, is of at least fourth-century origin, fell into a ruinous condition between
