Santa Susanna Rome - Carlo Maderno Building

The Church of Saint Susanna at the Baths of Diocletian is a Roman Catholic parish church located on the Quirinal Hill. There has been a titular church associated to its site as far back as A.D. 280.

The current church was rebuilt from 1585 to 1603 for a monastery of Cistercian nuns founded on the site in 1587, which still exists there.

The church served as the national parish for residents of Rome from the United States from 1921 to 2017. During this period it was assigned to the care of the Paulist Fathers, a society of priests founded in the United States.

According to tradition, the structure became a church around 330, under Emperor Constantine I, when the basilicas of numerous house churches came to be adapted for liturgical use. The basilica was T-shaped with a central nave with twelve columns on each side, flanked by side aisles.
