Jerome, Letters 107.1.4 (to Laeta; tr. W.H. Fremantle et al.):
Every temple in Rome is covered with soot and cobwebs.

fuligine et aranearum telis omnia Romae templa cooperta sunt.
Id., 107.2.2:
Even in Rome itself paganism is left in solitude. They who once were the gods of the nations remain under their lonely roofs with horned-owls and birds of night.

solitudinem patitur et in urbe gentilitas, dii quondam nationum cum bubonibus et noctuis in solis culminibus remanserunt.
