The metaplasm is also used to allegorize the name of Pudentiana as used in classical and medieval literature. The one who calls is himself the way, the guide and the guardian who promises joys and forgives sins. Thanks to Claudio Mastandrea for his sugges- tions on this topic. Nos meritis hor um redeamus ad alta polor um. See Riccioni Benedict himself, a consecrated cardinal, made the church consecrated, at the time of the same holy pope, the seventh day before the first of August, in the name of Pastor and of the precursor John.
Because of the cross and the garment of God, this place must be considered holy; united with them in this place are also part of the garment of St. Consacration inscription of S. Pastore Chapel.
Relics are remembered in the central part of the text. The first part of the text is in hexametric verse while the invocation of the last two lines is in prose.
The use of metaplasm in epigraphy is very unusual, not only for inscriptions exe- cuted in Rome, and allows us to hypothesise that the author of the text was the same person as the author of the slab and the architrave and by that measure means that these works were executed during the same period.
Were there space on this stone, we could list say the names of many of them.
Through their merits, may we reach the summit of the heavens. The portal of Santa Pudenziana, therefore, can be plausibly anchored in the eleventh century. The inscriptions are displayed on frames circulating the saints and Christ in Majesty: signum crucis Ad me ponderibus press[i rec]reabo venite. I am the quiet rest, I am God, life and salvation. Christ in Fig.
Right jamb. Left jamb. The account of a final inscription on the architrave, handed down by Ugonio, is not considered reliable. These portraits refer to the papal portraits that once adorned the early Christian basilicas of San Pietro in the Vatican and San Paolo fuori le mura,56 but they can also be related to the specific funerary use of the imago clipeata. Miracle of Chersonesus. Image of Saint Clement.
The Reform consisted of a series of reforms of ecclesiastical structures that were dia- lectically combined, producing a radical change, which was not the result of a pre-es- tablished project and had no single root.
See also Riccioni b, f. Noticeably, decoration is absent, and the inscriptions are written directly on the lintel over the door.
Lorenzo in Lucina the inscription reads: 62 Having posed the question in these terms, the recent historiography is unanimous in recognizing that is not possible to speak of the art of the Church Reform, see Gandolfo ; Sukale ; Pace ; Kessler , with a different approach; Barral i Altet ; Gandolfo , —; Claussen , For an overview of this topic, see Riccioni b, — The text, in leonine hexameters, commemorates a certain Peter presbiterus priest res- ponsible for the execution of the portal, probably dating to the same time as the altar consecration.
The capital script is carried out in square shapes and slightly elongated, the incision is executed with a thin groove.
The execu- tions of B, P, and the curvatures of the letters as they approach the arc of a circle are also related. It is strong in its jambs. God consider him worthy to be joined to your saints. The letters are written in Romanesque majuscule; as they are small, they are difficult to read from afar. The second part of the text continues on the door frame, written in larger letters: Que domus ista gerit si pignera noscere queris corpora Paulini sint credas Bartholomei.
The text produces further evidence of the presence of both Saint Paulinus and Saint Bartholomew in the church. The inscription on the upper lintel of the door has not been added to an older door in order to confirm the presence of the relics in the church, as has been suggested.
The first part of the inscription is arranged symmetrically on the upper frame,75 with small letters, and corresponds with the intention to affirm the presence of the relics.
The text is not only closely linked to the monument, but also does not seem intended to reach out to a wider public. The larger letters of the second inscription seem to be directed to a broader public. Porticoes were mostly built to showcase the reformed Roman Church and the archi- trave served as the space where the assertion was explicitly expressed in writing. The new constructions adopted the ionic colonnade and the archi- trave used in Late Antiquity for the interior of Early Christian basilicas, among which Santa Maria Maggiore formed a model of particular symbolic significance.
This was the case with the reconstruction of the basilica of San Crisogono in Trastevere, which was a Roman- esque model of the triumphant Church. Moreover, these inscrip- tions were large and contained complex, sophisticated and political texts, not exclu- 78 Riccioni See Pensabene , Instead they focused more on the sacralisation of urban space, one of the features of medieval art in Rome.
Tertius Eugenius romanus p a p a benignus optulit hoc munus virgo Maria tibi que mater Christi fieri merito meruisti salva perpetua virginitate tibi es via vita salus totius gl ori a mundi da venia m culpis virginitatis hono[s]. Inscription from porticoed atrium. In this way, the pope established a direct link between his restoration works, the Virgin, and an important icon kept in the basilica.
Once again, the font was an elegant library majuscule that can be defined as an epigraphic display script taken from the models of the Giant Bibles.
You are the way, the life, the salvation, and the glory of the entire world. Presbiter ecclesie romane rite Iohannes hec animi voto dona vovendo dedit martiribus Christi Paulo pariterque Iohanni passio quos eadem contulit esse pares.
Trabeation of the portico with dedicatory inscription. It seems clear that the display of these inscriptions was as important as the porticoes they graced. The inscription was done in a particularly elegant library majuscule, with squared-off modules; of all the inscriptions treated here, it is the closest in form and disposition to the scripts and incipits of luxury liturgical manuscripts.
