It's in Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, a church built by Pope Zacharias in the 7th century over the site of a former temple to Minerva, as a symbol of Christianity's conquest and vanquish of the pagan religion and gods. It was an Eastern rite monastery until remodeled in the Gothic style when it became Headquarters to the Dominicans in the 1200's. St. Catherine of Siena is entombed under the altar there and Fra Angelico entombed there as well.
