Santu Antinu

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

In Sardegna si vènera San Costantino imperatore (Santu Antinu). Costantino, in realtà, non è considerato santo dalla chiesa cattolica mentre lo è per la chiesa ortodossa. Questo culto infatti risale al periodo della dominazione bizantina ed è particolarmente sentito a Sèdilo e a Pozzomaggiore. In entrambi i paesi, pur con modalità diverse, si onora con un rito di devozione e di ardimento equestre, l'Àrdia, che rievoca la battaglia di Ponte Milvio.

In Sardinia St. Constantine Emperor (Santu Antinu) is venerated. Constantine, in fact, is not considered a saint by the Catholic Church, but by the Orthodox Church he is. This cult goes back to the period of byzantine rule and is particularly felt in Sedilo and Pozzomaggiore. In both villages, though in different ways, is honored with a ritual of devotion and daring equestrian, the Ardia, which commemorates the Battle of Milvian Bridge.
