The Christian Catacombs of Rome "The Internet site gives a wide range of answers to the many questions of visitors

What are really the catacombs?... When did they originate? Why did they develop so extensively? Why are they located outside the city walls, along the great consular roads? ...Since the catacombs are only cemeteries, how can they tell us the history of the early Church in Rome? Why did the Christians use so many symbols? Why were the Christians persecuted? Did the persecutions last uninterruptedly for centuries? What was the behavior of the Christians during the persecutions? Did they suffer them passively, without any resistance or did they react to this injustice? ...What is the importance of the Catacombs for the Church of today?"
