Abstract :
Examines the Early Christian archaeology of Imola, focusing on excavations (1970s-1980s) at Villa Clelia (near Imola), which revealed a 4th-6th c. cemetery, tombs, a late 5th-early 6th c. basilica built on the site of an earlier mortuary chapel of S. Cassian, and other religious architecture and archaeological materials (4th-11th cs.). Attempts to determine whether the site was the seat of a bishop during the Early Christian period. (In the 10th c. San Cassiano is cited as a bishopric). Suggests, after examining documents, archaeological evidence and recent scholarship, that the Early Christian cathedral of Imola was located on the site of the 11th c. church of S. Lorenzo (within the city), and that after the destruction caused by the Hungarians (10th c.), the bishopric was transferred to San Cassiano. ;
