    Aleteia invites you to a virtual Lenten pilgrimage through Rome’s 42 station churches: one church per day, from February 17 to April 11.

    Day 7

    The Basilica of St. Anastasia is probably one of the oldest in Rome (built no later than the 4th century). The identity of Anastasia is not clear: some believe she is the sister of Emperor Constantine, others a martyr of Sirmium, and others still, a wealthy Roman woman on whose land the church stands.

    The basilica is traditionally linked to the preaching of St. Jerome (4th century), who probably lived here and is said to have brought important relics from the Holy Land. For over 1,600 years, the cloak of St. Joseph and part of the veil of Our Lady have been kept here.
