Solin - Marusinac

Published in Culture and sights

The Cemetery along the "basilica with no roof" is a courtyard surrounded by a cloister used for rituals of the cemetery cult under the open sky. The meaning of "Double" basilicas, constructed one against the other, was that one was dedicated to an official cult while the other to a cult of local martyrs that the people particularly respected. At the beginning of the 4th century, a rich family from Salona buried the body of the martyr Anastasias from Aquileia on their property. A large private mausoleum had a crypt in whose apse the sarcophagus with the martyr's body was placed whilst in the lounge members of the family were buried. In the upper part of the building was a room for posthumous rituals for esteeming martyrs.
