Constantine’s basilica was consecrated on November 18, 324 during the pontificate of Sylvester I, and is part of the series of churches built by the emperor inside but mostly outside the city, and is the second foundation of Constantine in order of time, after the cathedral dedicated the Holy Saviour (the present Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano). The Basilica of St. Paul Constantine proved inadequate in time for the crowd of pilgrims who came, it was much smaller than the contemporary church of San Pietro. It was then completely rebuilt under the joint reign of Emperor Theodosius I, Valentinian II and Gratian, and this structure will remain substantially intact until the disastrous fire of 1823. The construction was entrusted to Ciriade Professor Mechanicus who built a building with five naves, with 80 columns and a portico that differed from the previous year, as well as the size for the opposite direction of the apse of the basilica retained even after the ‘Fire of 1823. The basilica was consecrated by Pope Siricius and was completed in 390 under Emperor Honorius in 395. Subsequent additions, such as the monumental arch supported by columns and splendid mosaics which decorated, respectively, are attributable to restorations made by Galla Placidia and actions of Pope Leo I. This did make the rounds with papal portraits that ran above the arches of the nave and some of them, survived the fire, are preserved in the Collection de Rossi, in the adjacent monastery, along with other restored over the centuries. Symmachus was responsible for the restructuring of the unsafe apse and the creation of”habitacula, ” the mansion for the poorer pilgrims, then renovated by Sergio I.
