L'altare maggiore e il ciborio gotico dell'Archilbasilica di San Giovanni in Laterano
"The high altar and the Gothic ciborium of the Archilbasilica of San Giovanni in Laterano"...
Dedicated to St. John the Baptist and St. John the Evangelist, the Basilica of St. John Lateran is the first among the four major basilicas of Rome. It is also the Cathedral of the Bishop of Rome, the Pope, and is thus known as the "Cathedral of Rome and of the World." Built by Constantine the Great in the 4th century, San Giovanni in Laterano was the first Christian/Catholic church erected in Rome. The present structure of the Basilica resembles Saint Peter's Basilica, and the ancient church was residence of the Papacy until the (1377) return from exile in Avignon and permanent relocation to the Vatican. Many Popes were responsible for repair and additions to the Basilica’s overall splendor and importance throughout the last 1700 years.
