I am finally getting to write this (weeks later). 

San Miniato al Monte is a basilica in Florence named for St. Miniato (Minas) an Armenian Prince and a Christian martyr. The story is that San Miniato was beheaded during anti-Christian persecutions but then picked up his own head and crossed the Arno to the very spot the church now stands.
