A visit to The Cathedral of Segni, Italy

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

When FromRome.Info began, it was my intention to include images and videos from various Churches and historical places in and around Rome.  With the Plandemic this became very difficult, but as I get a chance, I share here some of the beautiful things I discover, when I am able to make a trip outside of Rome.

Today, when visiting the ancient city of Segni, home of the Conti dei Segni, a noble family in the SE of the province of Rome, I had the opportunity to visit the Cathedral.  Segni has given the Church 5 Popes: Saint Vitaliano (657-672), Innocent III, Gregory IX, Alexander IV, and Innocent XIII, not to mention St. Bruno, Bishop of Segni (1079-1123), who refuted the heretic Berengarius of Tours, at the Second Lateran Council, for having denied the real presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

Segni is a city of great importance in the history of the Crusades, since St. Bruno, its Bishop was one of the few Catholic Bishops of Italy who supported the true Pope, Urban II, and who attended the Council of Clermont with him, 926 years ago this week, where, on Nov. 28, 1095, the First Crusade was called.

By the Divine Providence, the choir was rehearsing an Oratorio as I entered, so I shot this music video. Enjoy!

  1. I was expecting to see a beautiful ornate high alter. Did they wreckovate it or do you suppose it was always simple like that?

    1. It was partially wreckovated, since they detached the mensa from the back and placed the mensa on pillars, while reattaching the facade to the back.

  2. Br. Bugnolo, is there any good information material in English, German or French, like books, movies, etc. about the Catholic church esp. the crusades out there?
