The Basilica of St. John Lateran in the past

Before being a Basilica it was property of the noble roman family of the Laterani, they dead during Neron's rule and their properties passed into hands of the imperial domain. After that, the properties passed into hands of Constantino I, who was the first emperor that gave freedom of worship to Christians, allowing that a Basilica was built next to his properties. When they won the battle of the Milvio Bridge in 312 a.c. its construction started.

Over the years, the church suffered an earthquake in 846 a.c which destroyed Rome and some fires. However the city was rebuilt, the old structure was conserved, ald also the cloisters and the baptistery, which was fully rebuilt.

Until 1870 a.c., the pontiffs were named Popes of Rome in the Basilica of St. John Lateran. Nowadays, it still having an important role, the Pope celebrate inside it the offices of the holy Thursday.
