In this place, the dead were buried/ in early times. Narrow hallways, three to five feet wide, have been cut in the soft rock, Along the side of these halls, on several levels, are rows of holes or niches which are the graves of the dead. Off the main halls are rooms for burials and larger chapels where the early Christians held their services. The catacombs have had a long and strange history. Among the earliest people to use the catacombs for burial •were the Jewish people of Rome, They were the :-ock tombs of Palestine, and so :hey chose to bury their dead n the rock near the city. After them Iho Christians dug out new catacombs for burial ilaces and added chapels where hey could worship. At first, the Chr)sUan8 were able to use hese catacombs simply by puy- ng a fee, such as any burial society would pay, But when he great persecution of the Christians in Rome began, all his was changed. Christians were hunted and put in prison. The dark passages of the atacombs were safe, but even here the Christians' enemies earched for them.
