Forgive and Forget

Temple of Antonius and Faustina
Temple of Antonius and Faustina, originally uploaded by mharrsch.
Although it was said that Faustina, the Emperor Antonius' wife was serially unfaithful, he nonetheless dedicated this temple to her in 141 C.E. After his death, it was rededicated to them both. In the 11th century the temple was converted to a church named San Lorenzo because it was thought that San Lorenzo had been condemned to death there. The church was later rebuilt in 1601.
