Rome, Italy – Built with the finest materials, the Rome Temple graces the surrounding countryside with refined beauty. The Rome Temple is based on the architecture of ancient Rome, giving it a stylistic oval design. Even the landscape is full of historical value. The walkway surrounding the temple is made up of 100-year-old basalt cobblestone from the streets of Rome, and the gardens hold aged olive trees and Italian stone pine trees. The Rome Italy Temple is the first Italian temple, and the 162nd temple built. This sacred structure connects the present to its historic past.
Take a guided tour of the Rome Italy Temple with one of our friendly volunteers. On the tour, you’ll be guided through interactive displays, get an inside look at the history of the Rome Temple, and have an amazing experience with Thorvaldsen’s 基督。 All tours are hosted by the Rome Temple Visitors’ Center.

羅馬聖殿於 2019 年 3 月 10 日由羅素·納爾遜總統奉獻。這座寺廟是意大利第一座，歐洲第十三座。
In 1997 The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints purchased 15 acres of land on a slight hill, with a grove of olive trees. At the time it was used as a Church farm but local members of the Church quickly referred to the land as a future temple site, long before the temple was announced.
In the October General Conference of 2008, President Thomas S. Monson announced plans for the Rome Temple, bringing a long-anticipated temple to the people of Italy.
教會需要一段時間才能獲得所有適當的建造許可。在羅馬獲得建築許可之前，必須檢查這片土地是否有羅馬遺址。如果有任何廢墟，教會將不得不尋找不同的財產來建造。到了檢查時間，羅馬的教會成員祈禱並禁食，以免在該財產上發現任何廢墟。檢查是通過每 10-15 英尺在整個物業上挖溝來執行的。奇蹟般地，整個遺址都沒有發現任何遺跡，並且在距離該物業僅 100 碼的地方發現了一個古老的羅馬村莊。
2010 年 10 月 23 日，Thomas S. Monson 為這座寺廟奠基。這座寺廟是用文藝復興時期的精神建造的，使用了歐洲藝術家所能提供的最好的作品。其中許多作品都是基於米開朗基羅的原始設計。
The visitors’ center features life-size statue replicas of the Christus, by Bertel Thorvaldsen, and it is the first visitors’ center to debut marble statue replicas of the 12 apostles. All of these masterpieces were made entirely with the same dimensions and granite as the original statues.
The Rome Temple was dedicated in seven different sessions from March 10 to March 12, 2019. This was a historical dedication as it was the first time that all fifteen members of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gathered together outside of the United States.
