St. Cecilia is a Baroque sculpture by Stefano Maderno in the church of Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, Rome. This sculpture was created after the incorrupt body of St. Cecilia, a second-century Roman martyr, was found entombed under the altar of the church in 1600. After the discovery of the corpse, Cardinal Paolo Emilio Sfrondrato commissioned a renovation of the church, including a new tomb. Maderno's sculpture replicates the position in which the preserved body was discovered.
