Pudenziana, sister of St. Praxedes and daughter of Senator Pudens, was converted to Christianity by the Apostle Peter. Pudens, who had hosted the latter before his arrest, turned his home on the Viminale into a place of prayer for the early Christians. Pudenziana, as well as her sister Praxedes, was devoted to the burial of the martyrs and to helping those in need. The church, built on the site of the house of Pudens, is now at a lower level than the road. The interior is decorated with an apse mosaic (V century) with Christ on the throne surrounded by the Apostles and the Saints Pudenziana and Praxedes in the act of offering a crown. The relics of the young martyr are kept in the crypt of the church of S. Prassede all’Esquilino.
