During Lent and Easter week, St Lawrence Outside the Walls is twice a stational church: on the third Sunday of Lent and on Wednesday after Easter. This already shows the importance of the burial place of the most "famous" Roman archdeacon.
Although not one of the four Major Basilicas of Rome, the Basilica of St. Lawrence Outside the Wall is counted along with them as one of the five patriarchal basilicas, as it is the honorary seat of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem.
It was built on a previous Constantinian oratory and dates back both to the 6th and the 13th century, its peculiarity lying in the fact that it consists of two connected structures that make the visit captivating. A bomb in July 1943 seriously damaged part of the structure that was soon cleverly restored to our delight . Its visit will take us in the olden days, yet still mysteriously present here.
The lecture lasts 1 hour with 20 minutes of Q&A at the end!
