|St. Cecilia (right) as depicted in the 9th-|
century apse above the altar in the Church
of St. Cecilia in Rome. In this scene, she stands
next to her husband, St. Valerian, who
stands next to St. Peter the Apostle.
|During renovations of the Church which bares her name in 1599,|
the tomb of St. Cecilia was opened. Inside, her body was found
to be incorrupt and Church officials were stunned. Gashes were still
visible on her neck. A local Roman sculptor, Stefano Maderno, was
hired to create a sculpture (pictured above) which records exactly
how the saint's body appeared when the tomb was opened.
|How much of the above story is true and how much is pious legend, is impossible to say. What we do know, according to archaeological and historical evidence, is that underneath the ninth century Church of St. Cecilia in Trastevere (an area of Rome located on the west side of the Tiber River), is a second-century domus ecclesia, or house-church. A house-church was a private home that was donated to the Church for use in worship, catechesis and administration. It was common practice in the early centuries of the Church for wealthy Christian families to donate homes to the Church for this purpose. Once donated to the Church, these homes usually continued to bear the name of the donor.|
