No, this is not a disambiguation page, though it is capable of being pared down to become an expanded dictionary definition. A first passing editor casually applied the disambiguation tag. Then a second passing editor would discard all information that does not fit the prescribed disambiguation format. Not useful to the Wikipedia reader. Since it appears that the disambiguation category cannot be applied with thoughtfulness and flexibilioty, it must be applied very cautiously, and only to the strictly-regulated subtype of "disambiguation pages". Think before you apply any tag. This is not a disambiguation page. --Wetman 04:05, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

Origin of tituli[edit]

Statement is made: "Originally,[when?] these were basilicas in Rome[dubious – discuss] under the direction of a permanently appointed presbyter and corresponding to what would now be called parish churches." Originally, San Clemente was an apartment house in which Clement's Christian followers met; originally SS. Giovanni and Paolo was the family house. Santa Croce in Gerusalemme was an audience hall in the palace of Constantine's daughter. Basilicas did not become available to the Christians (they were not allowed to own land corporately until Constantine's time) until the fourth century. Obviously more thought and a lot more care needs to be put into this section. Vicedomino (talk) 11:09, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
