S. Pudenziana


[image ALT: zzz]

The Paschal Lamb: the central roundel over the main door (11c). The inscription reads:

Mortuus et vivus idem sum pastor et agnus
+
Hic agnus mundum restaurat sanguine lapsum

Dead and alive, I am the same shepherd and lamb
+
This lamb by his blood restores the fallen world.

For the more studious, some good basic topographical and art history information is immediately available: Christian Hülsen's article on this church in Le Chiese di Roma nel Medio Evo, linked to 2 further important texts — Armellini's Le Chiese di Roma and the article in the 1763 edition of Filippo Titi's guidebook.
