Santa Prassede all'Esquilino

< previous > < index > < next >
The altar at the end of the corridor has Cosmatesque decoration on its frontal also, and probably also came from the old altar. The pair of marble lampstands to either side also incorporate mediaeval carvings of fantastic creatures, thought to have belonged to the chancel screen. Above the altar is an 18th century fresco which has deteriorated badly, apparently a copy of one found in the destroyed shrine room.
