Chiesa di San Giovanni

Chiesa di San Giovanni


Marsala, Italy (IT)
The church of San Giovanni. This simple building with a doorway dating from 1555 replaced a fifth century early Christian church from which came the present font. According to local tradition, this belonged to the ancient oracular shrine of the Sibyl of Lilybaeum; this prophetess was apparently, in contrast to other divinely gifted seers, such as the Erythraeian one or the prophetess from Cumae, of only local significance.
