Situated in the ancient Roman Forum, in the Italian capital city of Rome, the Temple of Romulus was dedicated by Emperor Maxentius to his son Valerius Romulus, who died in 309 AD and was rendered divine honours. The ancient Roman monument was Christianised and dedicated to Sancti Cosma et Damiano in 527 AD, when Theodoric the Great, King of the Ostrogoths, and his daughter Amalasuntha donated the library of the Forum of Peace (Bibliotheca Pacis) and a portion of the Temple of Romulus to Pope Felix IV.
