John Evelyn mentions the church as the resting place of the mysterious bishop


”After seven miles’ riding, passing through a wood heretofore sacred to Juno, we came to Montefiascone, the head of the Falisci, a famous people in old time, and heretofore Falernum, as renowned for its excellent wine, as now for the story of the Dutch Bishop, who lies buried in St. Flavian’s church with this epitaph:

Chiesa di San Flaviano” by Henri Labrouste. 1800. Source: BnF.
