Santa Maria Liberatrice a Monte Testaccio stands just west of Porta San Paolo and the Pyramid of Gaius Cestius near the banks of the Tiber River in Rome. The first Santa Maria Liberatrice church was built in the Roman Forum in the 18th Century over the ruins of S. Maria Antiqua. In 1901-2 S Maria Liberatrice was pulled down during excavations works within the forum, and anew church of the same name built in Testaccio. This part of Rome was being developed into a modern sector with cheap housing, and the church was built in the main square. The image on the altar of old Santa Maria Liberatrice was moved to the new church.

The name comes from a prayer and petition to Mary to 'libera nos a poenis inferni' (free us from Hell's pains).
