Samuel Ball Platner, Thomas Ashby, A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome, GREGORIUS MAGNUS, DOMUS (search)
GREGORIUS MAGNUS, DOMUS situated on the elivus Seauri, opposite the JOHANNIS ET PAULI (q.v.). In it Gregory founded the church which still bears his name, in honour of S. Andrew, about 580 A.D. (LPD i. 312:hie domum suam eonstituit monasterium). Johannes Diaeonus (Vita S. Greg. IV 83-84, in Migne, Patrol. Lat. exxv. 230) speaks of some paintings executed here during Gregory's lifetime by his order, representing himself and his parents, whieh are now no longer visible. The name domus Aniciorum is often applied to it, in as much as Gregory belonged to the family of the Anicii Petronii. Pope Agapetus I (535-536) had previously founded a library here, the dedicatory inscription of which is preserved, and some remains of which exist (De Rossi, Inse. Crist. ii. I. p. 16; LPD i. 288, n. I; LF35; LR 351-352; DAP 2. viii. 417-450; HCh 256; Leclercq in Cabrol, Diet. vi. 1753-1770).
