Santa Maria dell'Anima

National Church of the Germans

The church of Santa Maria dell'Anima was the National Church of the Germans - specifically of all pilgrims from the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation - and was built in 1514 at the Piazza Navona. Even today, it is the parish church of German Catholics in Rome and offers a mass in German every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Pope Adrian VI from Utrecht was buried here in 1523 - he was the last non-Italian pope before the Polish John Paul II. The tomb of the Pope, who reigned from 1522 to 1523 immediately after the commencement of the Reformation, is located right in the choir room and is surrounded by the allegories of the cardinal virtues - prudence, justice, bravery, discipline and measure.
