Early christian roman mosaics

It was built in the early 4th century, and consecrated as a church in 1254 by Pope Alexander IV. A restoration in 1620 by Cardinal Veralli destroyed most of the mosaics in the central dome. The remaining dome mosaics were destroyed in a 19th century restoration project. Archaeologists seem to agree that this is one of the most intact Roman structures of its period, standing generally as it was built, with exception of loss of an external colonnaded ambulatory, some remains of which can still be seen. The structure is known for the mosaics that have survived, although heavily restored.

An oasis in the Syrian desert, north-east of Damascus, Palmyra contains the monumental ruins of a great city that was one of the most important cultural centres of the ancient world. From the 1st to the 2nd century, the art and architecture of Palmyra, standing at the crossroads of several civilizations, married Graeco-Roman techniques with local traditions and Persian influences.
