Churches in Rome

Rome churches images, stock photos of churches and religious architecture in Rome. Landmarks and sites of religious interest.

There are more than 900 churches in Rome, including some notable Roman Catholic Marian churches. Most, but not all, of these are Roman Catholic.

The first churches of Rome originated in places where Christians met. They were divided into three categories:

– the houses of private Roman citizens (people who hosted the meetings of Christians – also known as oratoria, oracula)
– the deaconries (places where charity distributions were given to the poor and placed under the control of a deacon; the greatest deaconries had many deacons, and one of them was elected archdeacon)
– other houses holding a titulus (known as domus ecclesia)

This is a list of churches of Rome cited in Wikipedia articles or with related files on Wikimedia Commons. The churches are grouped according to the time of their initial construction: the dates are those of the first record of each church. The reader, however, should not expect the current fabric of the buildings to reflect that age, since over the centuries most have undergone reconstruction. Almost all the churches will thus appear considerably more recent, and as a patchwork of periods and styles.
