Cattedrale di San Giovenale - Narni
The Romanesque church stands in the place where tradition has it that the first bishop of Narni, Giovenale, who lived in the 4th century AD, was buried. and remembered by Pope Gregory the Great as a "holy martyr".
According to a recent hypothesis, the first small building dates back to the time of Bishop Cassio (536 - 558), in accordance with what reported by hagiographic sources.
The first certain news of the church built around the oratory, consecrated in 1145 by Pope Eugene III and dedicated to San Giovenale, is the inscription carved on the architrave of the access portal to the right nave of the building, dated 1120.
The church of San Giovenale would become the seat of the episcopal chair only in the thirteenth century.
The Romanesque building, with an uneven apse and an original salient facade, was probably provided with four naves from the beginning.
Some mosaic and fresco decorations are still preserved inside the ancient high-medieval oratory.
