Death and glory of Saint Paul

Paul came to Rome probably a second time and was condemned to death as a Christian by a Roman court. The sentence was carried out in a place called ‘Palude Salvia’ close to Urbe. His body was taken two miles away from the place of his martyrdom and laid in the burial area which a Christian woman named Lucina owned on Via Ostiense. His tomb became a place of veneration and a memorial chamber was built above it where pilgrims and faithful people came to pray during centuries.
