Church of San Giovanni Decollato – The saint

0
The church in Via Giacomo Puccini is dedicated to St John 'Decollato'. The reason for this particular name is linked to the saint's death, because, as we know from the gospels, John the Baptist publicly condemned the conduct of Herod Antipas, who was living with his sister-in-law Herodias, Philip's widow; the king first had him imprisoned, then, to please Herodias' daughter Salome, who had danced at a banquet, he had him beheaded.
