Description

St Sabina at the Aventine is dedicated to St Sabina, martyred in 114. It was built in the 5th century, presumably on the original site of Titulus Sabinae. The “tituli” were the first parish churches built in Rome. St Sabina at the Aventine looks much as it did when it was built in the 5th century. The style is Illyrian rather than Roman, which explains the unusually large windows. The main entrance is closed by a wooden door dating from the fifth century, which is the oldest example of PaleoChristian wooden door.
