History and Symbolism:
Under Pope Sixtus II, Saint Lawrence or Lawrence was one of the seven deacons of the city of Rome, Italy, who were martyred in the persecution of Christians ordered by the Roman Emperor Valerian in 258. Damasus, Prudentius, Ambrose, and Augustine were aware of the legendary details of Lawrence's death. The church built above his grave became one of Rome's seven main churches and a favorite place for Roman pilgrimages.
