*This church is dedicated to St Eusebius of Vercelli. During his life he strenuously opposed the heresy of Arianism. In 355 AD at a synod in Milan his refusal to accept Arianism led to his exile. During this time he suffered greatly especially at the hands of an Arian bishop in Syria. Some years later he was granted his freedom and eventually returned to Vercelli.
*An altar on the left side of the nave contains an urn with the remains of St Eusebius.

*This church is southeast of the Basilica of St Mary Major. It is dedicated to St Eusebius but probably not to St Eusebius the Bishop. Instead by tradition the remains of three early martyrs are here: Eusebius, Orosius and Paulinus.
