Chiesa Santi Quirico e Giulitta

The chiesa dei Santi Quirico e Giulitta is a church on via Tor de’ Conti in the Monti rione of Rome. It is dedicated to Quiricus and Julietta, two 4th-century martyrs. Recent excavations uncovered remains of the church's original 6th century building and these are now visible in the present church's crypt (which also houses the Museo tipologico internazionale del presepio Angelo Stefanucci. The 6th century building was dedicated to saintsStephen and Lawrence and was on the opposite orientation to the present one (i.e. its apse is under the present church's 'west' front). That building was rebuilt at the end of the 15th century and in 1584, when the orientation was reversed.
