•Juftidr Editor Quit arv CATACOMBS QUESTION: What were the catacombs like? ANSWER: The early Christians living in Rome had a very difficult time, for the Roman emperors made serious efforts to stamp out the new religion. Christians were, however, allowed to hold property, Furthermore the Romans had a respect for decent burial. The result was that when the Christians began to bury people in crvpts or vaults under their churches, the Romans made no objection. The burial passageways which were called catacombs, were high but narrow, lined with grave openings on the side, in which the dead were placed. Walls were of plaster, decorated in places with large paintings of saints and martyrs in fresco. While at first intended only for burial, the early Christians used the catacombs as places of refuge during times of severe oppression. They constructed mazes of passageways with secret openings which only they knew about Finally, Rome became a Christian state; the last of the catacombs was built about A.D. 350. Now Christianity was above ground; the gloomy catacomb days were over. (Angela Jennings of Baltimore, Md., wins a prize for this question.
