The small Chapel of St. Zeno, off the right aisle of The Church, was built as a mausoleum for Paschal's mother Theodora. It is the only chapel in Rome
entirely lined with mosaics. It is an extraordinary sight.
Inside, the Chapel of St. Zeno is cross-shaped and based on the plan of early pagan and Christian mausoleums. It also resembles a cubiculum (small room)
in the catacombs.
The ceiling of the Chapel (pictured) depicts a mosaic bust of Christ with four angels.
