Abstract

Recent archaeological researchs carried out in Canosa di Puglia (Italy) lead to the discovery of two Early Christian complexes: San Pietro, founded by Bishop Sabinus (VI century A.D.), and San Giovanni-Santa Maria-San Salvatore, restored by the same bishop. Near the monumental baptiste- ry of this second church, the excavations brought to light the more ancient cathedral in Canosa sacred to the Virgo. The archaeological research interested part of the central and left naves and a portion of a porticus, probably belonging to an atrium. In the X century A.D. the cathedral, by this time abandoned, was occupied by houses and by a new little church.
