In this Altar in Saint Peter’s Basilica, Rome,
are kept the Relics of three Sainted Popes named Leo:
Leo II (682 A.D. - 683 A.D.);
Leo III (795 A.D. - 816 A.D.);
Leo IV (847 A.D. - 855 A.D.).
The Altar of Pope Saint Leo I (440 A.D. - 461 A.D.)
is right next to it.
Pope Leo XII (1823 - 1829) is buried in the floor between them.
