The Origins of the basilica of the SS. Apostoli are early medieval, with newer Renaissance and eighteenth century façade work. In the first chapel to the right is the painting of the Madonna col Bambino, Madonna and Child, one of the most famous examples of the neo-Byzantine culture supported by Cardinal Bessarion, who had commissioned the work from Antoniazzo Romano for his burial chapel in 1467. It is a resumption of the Santa Maria in Cosmedin icon, depicting the Vergine Theotokos, Virgin Theotokos, Mother of God, in the renewed worship of iconic medieval images promoted by the Venetian Pope Paul II Barbo (1464- 1471). The inscription reads Concepta absque ulla labe, “conceived without sin”.
