Noteworthy, yet rare, are the buildings and monuments from the early times of the spreading of the Christian faith in Umbria. The church of San Michele Arcangelo in Perugia is an interesting central-plan building that rose between the 7th and the 8th century. A.D. The sarcophagus inside the Oratorio of San Bernardino is the elaborate work of a 4th century A.D. roman craftsman, already depicting Christian subjects. The Basilica of San Salvatore in Spoleto is a splendid example of early-Christian church built using some pre-existing roman material. Not far from Spoleto is the isolated Tempietto del Clitunno, a quaint, charming Christian place of worship, long believed to be of roman origin. Many churches and Cathedrals rose around the first millennium: San Pietro in Perugia, and the Cathedral of San Rufino in Assisi were both built using material from ancient buildings. Exceptionally well preserved is the 11th century mosaic in the upper part of the tomb of San Giovenale in Narni, depicting a blessing Christ. A rare Longobard marble decorated slab, dating back to the 7th century A.D., mentioning a craftsman “Ursus Magister”, is to be seen in San Pietro in Valle at Ferentillo.
