Where Sts. John and Paul Were Martyred at Rome

Roman Basilica of Sts. John and Paul.


  1. St. John? I thought that st. John was the only Apostle who wasn't martyred..

  2. NOT the Apostles John and Paul: The church was built in 398, by will of senator Pammachius, over the home of two Roman soldiers, John and Paul, martyred under Julian in 362. The church was thus called the Titulus Pammachii and is recorded as such in the acts of the synod held by Pope Symmachus in 499.

  3. @Cunjo: No, it's not St. John the Apostle and St. Paul the Apostle. It's Ss. John & Paul...two different saints.
