Rome Colle Aventino, Basilica of Santa Sabina .Fr. Philipp Johannes WAGNER, O.P. Rector of the Basilica of Saint Sabina. The basilica of Santa Sabina all'Aventino is a Catholic place of worship in the historic center of Rome, located on the Aventine hill, in the territory of Rione XII Ripa. Built in the 5th century on the tomb of Santa Sabina, as well as one of the best preserved early Christian churches ever, The Basilica of Saint Sabina (Latin: Basilica Sanctae Sabinae, Italian: Basilica di Santa Sabina all'Aventino) is a historic church on the Aventine Hill in Rome, Italy. It is a titular minor basilica and mother church of the Roman Catholic Order of Preachers, better known as the Dominicans. Santa Sabina is the oldest extant Roman basilica in Rome that preserves its original colonnaded rectangular plan and architectural style. Its decorations have been restored to their original restrained design. Other basilicas, such as Santa Maria Maggiore, are often heavily and ornately decorated. Because of its simplicity, the Santa Sabina represents the crossover from a roofed Roman forum to the churches of Christendom. It is especially famous for its 5th-century carved wood doors, with a cycle of Christian scenes (18 now remaining) that is one of the earliest to survive. Santa Sabina is perched high above the Tiber to the north and the Circus Maximus to the east. It is next to the small public park of Giardino degli Aranci ("Garden of Oranges"), which has a scenic terrace overlooking Rome. It is a short distance from the headquarters of the Knights of Malta. History Santa Sabina was built by Peter of Illyria, a Dalmatian priest, between 422 and 432 near a temple of Juno on the Aventine Hill in Rome. The church was built on the site of early Imperial houses, one of which is said to be of Sabina, a Roman matron originally from Avezzano in the Abruzzo region of Italy. Sabina was beheaded under the Emperor Vespasian, or perhaps Hadrian, because she had been converted to

Rome Colle Aventino, The keyhole of the Villa del Priorato di Malta perfectly frames the dome of St. Peter's Basilica. A decidedly unusual and exciting perspective game: there are in fact those who point out that it is the only lock in the world from which you can see another state, namely the Vatican, even if on Italian soil, through the door of a villa that enjoys the right of extra territoriality. This is in fact the institutional seat of the Order of the Grand Priory of Rome of the Knights of Malta (now known as the Sovereign Military Order of Malta). A fortified Benedictine monastery once stood in this place, strategically located on the bend of the Tiber and passed into the hands of the Knights Templar. After the suppression of the order, it became the property of another chivalric religious order, the Knights Hospitallers. Several dynasties succeeded each other in the possession of this place, which, over time, had been restored and from a monastery had become a Renaissance complex. But it was thanks to Cardinal Giovanni Battista Rezzonico that in 1765 the Rococo-style entrance square was built, sumptuously decorated with coats of arms and trophies. The majestic entrance door to the square is the one from which you can 'spy' St. Peter's in the distance.21, July 2021

The eighteen panels that compose it are truly extraordinary, and represent scenes from the Old and New Testament. You can clearly see two different artists working in the door, one is more classicist with a Hellenistic stamp, the other has carved representations of popular art, including the first preserved image of Christ crucified between the two thieves. Go and look for the scene of the passage of the Red Sea: a few years after Napoleon's death, the restorer changed the features of the evil pharaoh who was drowning into those of the obviously hated emperor!21, July 2021

The Aventine Hill ; Latin: Collis Aventinus; Italian: Aventino is one of the Seven Hills on which ancient Rome was built. It belongs to Ripa, the modern twelfth rione, or ward, of Rome. The Aventine Hill is the southernmost of Rome's seven hills. It has two distinct heights, one greater to the northwest (Aventinus Major) and one lesser to the southeast (Aventinus Minor), divided by a steep cleft that provides the base for an ancient roadway between the heights. During the Republican era, the two hills may have been recognized as a single entity. History Roman According to Roman tradition, the Aventine was not included within Rome's original foundation, and lay outside the city's ancient sacred boundary (pomerium). The Roman historian Livy reports that Ancus Marcius, Rome's fourth king, defeated the Latins of Politorium, and resettled them there.[9] The Roman geographer Strabo credits Ancus with the building of a city wall to incorporate the Aventine.[10] Others credit the same wall to Rome's sixth king, Servius Tullius. The remains known as the Servian Wall used stone quarried at Veii, which was not conquered by Rome until c.393 BC, so the Aventine might have been part-walled, or an extramural suburb. The Aventine appears to have functioned as some kind of staging post for the legitimate ingress of foreign peoples and foreign cults into the Roman ambit. During the late regal era, Servius Tullius built a temple to Diana on the Aventine, as a Roman focus for the new-founded Latin League. The Aventine's outlying position, its longstanding association with Latins and plebeians and its extra-pomerial position reflect its early marginal status. At some time around 493 BC, soon after the expulsion of Rome's last King and the establishment of the Roman Republic, the Roman senate provided a temple for the so-called Aventine Triad of Ceres, Liber and Libera, patron deities of the Roman commoners or plebs; the dedication followed one of the first in a long series of threaten

Rome Colle Aventino, Basilica of Santa Sabina .Particular the large carved cypress portal, dating back to the 5th century and perfectly preserved, the first example of Christian wooden sculpture. The eighteen panels that compose it are truly extraordinary, and represent scenes from the Old and New Testament. You can clearly see two different artists working in the door, one is more classicist with a Hellenistic stamp, the other has carved representations of popular art, including the first preserved image of Christ crucified between the two thieves. Go and look for the scene of the passage of the Red Sea: a few years after Napoleon's death, the restorer changed the features of the evil pharaoh who was drowning into those of the obviously hated emperor!21, July 2021

The Aventine Hill ; Latin: Collis Aventinus; Italian: Aventino is one of the Seven Hills on which ancient Rome was built. It belongs to Ripa, the modern twelfth rione, or ward, of Rome. The Aventine Hill is the southernmost of Rome's seven hills. It has two distinct heights, one greater to the northwest (Aventinus Major) and one lesser to the southeast (Aventinus Minor), divided by a steep cleft that provides the base for an ancient roadway between the heights. During the Republican era, the two hills may have been recognized as a single entity. History Roman According to Roman tradition, the Aventine was not included within Rome's original foundation, and lay outside the city's ancient sacred boundary (pomerium). The Roman historian Livy reports that Ancus Marcius, Rome's fourth king, defeated the Latins of Politorium, and resettled them there.[9] The Roman geographer Strabo credits Ancus with the building of a city wall to incorporate the Aventine.[10] Others credit the same wall to Rome's sixth king, Servius Tullius. The remains known as the Servian Wall used stone quarried at Veii, which was not conquered by Rome until c.393 BC, so the Aventine might have been part-walled, or an extramural suburb. The Aventine appears to have functioned as some kind of staging post for the legitimate ingress of foreign peoples and foreign cults into the Roman ambit. During the late regal era, Servius Tullius built a temple to Diana on the Aventine, as a Roman focus for the new-founded Latin League. The Aventine's outlying position, its longstanding association with Latins and plebeians and its extra-pomerial position reflect its early marginal status. At some time around 493 BC, soon after the expulsion of Rome's last King and the establishment of the Roman Republic, the Roman senate provided a temple for the so-called Aventine Triad of Ceres, Liber and Libera, patron deities of the Roman commoners or plebs; the dedication followed one of the first in a long series of threaten

Rome Colle Aventino, The Basilica of Saint Sabina The basilica of Santa Sabina all'Aventino is a Catholic place of worship in the historic center of Rome, located on the Aventine hill, in the territory of Rione XII Ripa. Built in the 5th century on the tomb of Santa Sabina, as well as one of the best preserved early Christian churches ever, The Basilica of Saint Sabina (Latin: Basilica Sanctae Sabinae, Italian: Basilica di Santa Sabina all'Aventino) is a historic church on the Aventine Hill in Rome, Italy. It is a titular minor basilica and mother church of the Roman Catholic Order of Preachers, better known as the Dominicans. Santa Sabina is the oldest extant Roman basilica in Rome that preserves its original colonnaded rectangular plan and architectural style. Its decorations have been restored to their original restrained design. Other basilicas, such as Santa Maria Maggiore, are often heavily and ornately decorated. Because of its simplicity, the Santa Sabina represents the crossover from a roofed Roman forum to the churches of Christendom. It is especially famous for its 5th-century carved wood doors, with a cycle of Christian scenes (18 now remaining) that is one of the earliest to survive. Santa Sabina is perched high above the Tiber to the north and the Circus Maximus to the east. It is next to the small public park of Giardino degli Aranci ("Garden of Oranges"), which has a scenic terrace overlooking Rome. It is a short distance from the headquarters of the Knights of Malta. History Santa Sabina was built by Peter of Illyria, a Dalmatian priest, between 422 and 432 near a temple of Juno on the Aventine Hill in Rome. The church was built on the site of early Imperial houses, one of which is said to be of Sabina, a Roman matron originally from Avezzano in the Abruzzo region of Italy. Sabina was beheaded under the Emperor Vespasian, or perhaps Hadrian, because she had been converted to Christianity by her servant di lei Seraphia, who was stoned to death.

Rome Colle Aventino, The keyhole of the Villa del Priorato di Malta perfectly frames the dome of St. Peter's Basilica. A decidedly unusual and exciting perspective game: there are in fact those who point out that it is the only lock in the world from which you can see another state, namely the Vatican, even if on Italian soil, through the door of a villa that enjoys the right of extra territoriality. This is in fact the institutional seat of the Order of the Grand Priory of Rome of the Knights of Malta (now known as the Sovereign Military Order of Malta). A fortified Benedictine monastery once stood in this place, strategically located on the bend of the Tiber and passed into the hands of the Knights Templar. After the suppression of the order, it became the property of another chivalric religious order, the Knights Hospitallers. Several dynasties succeeded each other in the possession of this place, which, over time, had been restored and from a monastery had become a Renaissance complex. But it was thanks to Cardinal Giovanni Battista Rezzonico that in 1765 the Rococo-style entrance square was built, sumptuously decorated with coats of arms and trophies. The majestic entrance door to the square is the one from which you can 'spy' St. Peter's in the distance.21, July 2021

Rome Colle Aventino, The Basilica of Saint Sabina seen from the Orange Garden. The basilica of Santa Sabina all'Aventino is a Catholic place of worship in the historic center of Rome, located on the Aventine hill, in the territory of Rione XII Ripa. Built in the 5th century on the tomb of Santa Sabina, as well as one of the best preserved early Christian churches ever, The Basilica of Saint Sabina (Latin: Basilica Sanctae Sabinae, Italian: Basilica di Santa Sabina all'Aventino) is a historic church on the Aventine Hill in Rome, Italy. It is a titular minor basilica and mother church of the Roman Catholic Order of Preachers, better known as the Dominicans. Santa Sabina is the oldest extant Roman basilica in Rome that preserves its original colonnaded rectangular plan and architectural style. Its decorations have been restored to their original restrained design. Other basilicas, such as Santa Maria Maggiore, are often heavily and ornately decorated. Because of its simplicity, the Santa Sabina represents the crossover from a roofed Roman forum to the churches of Christendom. It is especially famous for its 5th-century carved wood doors, with a cycle of Christian scenes (18 now remaining) that is one of the earliest to survive. Santa Sabina is perched high above the Tiber to the north and the Circus Maximus to the east. It is next to the small public park of Giardino degli Aranci ("Garden of Oranges"), which has a scenic terrace overlooking Rome. It is a short distance from the headquarters of the Knights of Malta. History Santa Sabina was built by Peter of Illyria, a Dalmatian priest, between 422 and 432 near a temple of Juno on the Aventine Hill in Rome. The church was built on the site of early Imperial houses, one of which is said to be of Sabina, a Roman matron originally from Avezzano in the Abruzzo region of Italy. Sabina was beheaded under the Emperor Vespasian, or perhaps Hadrian, because she had been converted to Christianity by her servant di lei Seraph

The Aventine Hill ; Latin: Collis Aventinus; Italian: Aventino is one of the Seven Hills on which ancient Rome was built. It belongs to Ripa, the modern twelfth rione, or ward, of Rome. The Aventine Hill is the southernmost of Rome's seven hills. It has two distinct heights, one greater to the northwest (Aventinus Major) and one lesser to the southeast (Aventinus Minor), divided by a steep cleft that provides the base for an ancient roadway between the heights. During the Republican era, the two hills may have been recognized as a single entity. History Roman According to Roman tradition, the Aventine was not included within Rome's original foundation, and lay outside the city's ancient sacred boundary (pomerium). The Roman historian Livy reports that Ancus Marcius, Rome's fourth king, defeated the Latins of Politorium, and resettled them there.[9] The Roman geographer Strabo credits Ancus with the building of a city wall to incorporate the Aventine.[10] Others credit the same wall to Rome's sixth king, Servius Tullius. The remains known as the Servian Wall used stone quarried at Veii, which was not conquered by Rome until c.393 BC, so the Aventine might have been part-walled, or an extramural suburb. The Aventine appears to have functioned as some kind of staging post for the legitimate ingress of foreign peoples and foreign cults into the Roman ambit. During the late regal era, Servius Tullius built a temple to Diana on the Aventine, as a Roman focus for the new-founded Latin League. The Aventine's outlying position, its longstanding association with Latins and plebeians and its extra-pomerial position reflect its early marginal status. At some time around 493 BC, soon after the expulsion of Rome's last King and the establishment of the Roman Republic, the Roman senate provided a temple for the so-called Aventine Triad of Ceres, Liber and Libera, patron deities of the Roman commoners or plebs; the dedication followed one of the first in a long series of threaten

It is considered a symbol of the fecundity of the Dominican Order and, perhaps, the fruits of the candied oranges that Saint Catherine of Siena offered to Urban VI in 1379 were taken from this tree. The tree, of course, cannot be the original one, but tradition has it that this was miraculously born from the ancient one, for this reason it is still very revered and is highlighted by a circular wall with the inscription:21, July 2021

Built in the 5th century on the tomb of Santa Sabina, as well as one of the best preserved early Christian churches ever, The Basilica of Saint Sabina (Latin: Basilica Sanctae Sabinae, Italian: Basilica di Santa Sabina all'Aventino) is a historic church on the Aventine Hill in Rome, Italy. It is a titular minor basilica and mother church of the Roman Catholic Order of Preachers, better known as the Dominicans. Santa Sabina is the oldest extant Roman basilica in Rome that preserves its original colonnaded rectangular plan and architectural style. Its decorations have been restored to their original restrained design. Other basilicas, such as Santa Maria Maggiore, are often heavily and ornately decorated. Because of its simplicity, the Santa Sabina represents the crossover from a roofed Roman forum to the churches of Christendom. It is especially famous for its 5th-century carved wood doors, with a cycle of Christian scenes (18 now remaining) that is one of the earliest to survive. Santa Sabina is perched high above the Tiber to the north and the Circus Maximus to the east. It is next to the small public park of Giardino degli Aranci ("Garden of Oranges"), which has a scenic terrace overlooking Rome. It is a short distance from the headquarters of the Knights of Malta. History Santa Sabina was built by Peter of Illyria, a Dalmatian priest, between 422 and 432 near a temple of Juno on the Aventine Hill in Rome. The church was built on the site of early Imperial houses, one of which is said to be of Sabina, a Roman matron originally from Avezzano in the Abruzzo region of Italy. Sabina was beheaded under the Emperor Vespasian, or perhaps Hadrian, because she had been converted to Christianity by her servant di lei Seraphia, who was stoned to death.
