 p66  S. Elia Reatino

Thayer's Note: S. Elia Reatino, in Rieti province, is today part of the Lazio; but when Guardabassi wrote, and until 1927, it was in Umbria. The little town was once its own comune, thus deserving a separate notice in Guardabassi's scheme; it is now part of the comune of Rieti.

	Shrine of Fonte Colombo

Before reaching the church we meet with twelve small edicole, each of which depicts an episode of the via Crucis painted in enamel on a terracotta base; the last two of the fourteen Stations of the Cross are set in the wall of the church's atrium; the works are probably products of Gentili's maiolica workshops.

Interior. Main altar: Wooden sculpture — St. Francis; the work of a 17c Franciscan.

Near the convent, a little church with an ancient, primitive altar, and on the R: wall a Fresco. — St. Mary Magdalen raised in a cloud of glory by two Angels; a work of the school of Giotto.
