Description/NotesBuilt by Emperor Antoninus Pius following the death of his wife, Faustina the Elder in 141 CE. His name was added in 161 Originally covered in travertine (now gone). Converted to a Christian church (San Lorenzo in Miranda) in the 7th or 8th century CE. Baroque facade by Orazio Torriani dates from 1602. Excavation of the Temple began ca. 1801. As a result these excavations and those of the of the Forum which restored the Via Sacra to its ancient level, the Church can no longer be entered from the Forum (west) side through Torriani's facade due to a vertical gap between the stairs and the building.
