Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The Christianization of rural areas is a phenomenon that is implemented slowly and far from linear: a canon of the Council of Cividale of 796 recalls how Saturday was celebrated in the countryside of the area; this attitude, more than a testimony to the Judeo-Christian origins of Aquileian Christianity, probably indicates the persistent veneration, formal rather than substantial, for Saturn and for the day dedicated to him. Starting from the difficulty to grasp, on an archaeological basis, the real quality of rural Christianity, the contribution takes into consideration the historical and epigraphic evidence available and the baptismal centers returned by the archaeological investigations in Friuli (S. Canzian d'Isonzo, Osoppo, Ragogna, Nimis , Buia, Rive D'Arcano and Invillino), of which it analyzes types and functions.
