Lupe Schaefer, artist and mother of five very talented young adults, who are also some astounding artists, recently began hosting and teaching a Bible Study and creative art journaling in her home. The earliest part of this catacomb dates at all events from the end of the second century; from that time, therefore, to the middle of the third century is the period left open for the martyrdom of St.
Her church in the Trastevere quarter of Rome was rebuilt by Paschal I , on which occasion the pope wished to transfer thither her relics ; at first, however, he could not find them and believed that they had been stolen by the Lombards. In a vision he saw St. Cecilia, who exhorted him to continue his search, as he had already been very near to her, i. They may have been transported thither from the Catacomb of Callistus to save them from earlier depredations of the Lombards in the vicinity of Rome.
The relics of St. Cecilia with those of Valerianus, Tiburtius, and Maximus, also those of Popes Urbanus and Lucius , were taken up by Pope Paschal , and reburied under the high altar of St. Cecilia in Trastevere. The monks of a convent founded in the neighbourhood by the same pope were charged with the duty of singing the daily Office in this basilica. From this time the veneration of the holy martyr continued to spread, and numerous churches were dedicated to her. During the restoration of the church in the year Cardinal Sfondrato had the high altar examined and found under it the sarcophagi, with the relics of the saints , that Pope Paschal had transported thither.
Recent excavations beneath the church, executed at the instigation and expense of Cardinal Rampolla, disclosed remains of Roman buildings, which have remained accessible. A richly adorned underground chapel was built beneath the middle aisle , and in it a latticed window , opening over the altar, allows a view of the receptacles in which the bones of the saints repose.
In a side chapel of the church there have long been shown the remains of the bath in which, according to the Acts , Cecilia was put to death. The oldest representations of St. Cecilia show her in the attitude usual for martyrs in the Christian art of the earlier centuries, either with the crown of martyrdom in her hand e.
Apollinare Nuovo in Ravenna , in a sixth-century mosaic or in the attitude of prayer , as an Orans e. In the apse of her church in Trastevere is still preserved the mosaic made under Pope Paschal , wherein she is represented in rich garments as patroness of the pope. Medieval pictures of the saint are very frequent; since the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries she is given the organ as an attribute, or is represented as playing on the organ , evidently to express what was often attributed to her in panegyrics and poems based on the Acts , viz.
In this way the saint was brought into closer relation with music. When the Academy of Music was founded at Rome she was made patroness of the institute, whereupon her veneration as patroness of church music in general became still more universal; today Cecilian societies musical associations exist everywhere.
