    “The Lateran Basilica had been established by Constantine, who had turned the known world Christian; it was the signal monument to the triumph of the new faith in the old capital of the world. The palace had served the bishop and his administration for a century and more; it had been enlarged and beautified. Tradition favored retaining the old site and buildings. The papal bureaucracy, comfortably installed and with the inertia inherent in all bureaucracies, was reluctant, one assumes, to move to the new quarters. In terms of sheer convenience, the site was not bad: in the greenbelt, airy, with plenty of water from the nearby aqueducts which still functioned well, and easily provisioned from gardens inside and nearby fields outside the walls. Moving was out of question; other ways had to be found to counter the drawbacks of the Lateran’s location.” “…located on the margin of the city near the walls, it was more isolated than ever.”

    Krautheimer, Richard: Rome – Profile of a City, 312–1308, Princeton University Press, New Jersey, 1980, pp. 56–57.
