Description/NotesFounded in the 4th c. CE, present Church of San Clemente dates from 1100 under the patronage of Cardinal Anastasius (cardinal c. 1099 - c. 1125). When the site of the late 4th-century church was filled in, some of furnishings were salvaged. Apse mosaics are 12th century, but evoke Early Christian or Early Byzantine style. Some of the chancel panels are salvaged; others appears to be 12th century with mosaic inlay. Floors are Cosmati work, 12th c. See: http://roma.katolsk.no/clemente.htm
