Terra Catacombe Meaning

Early Christian Funerary Art

FOR THE MOST PART, existing examples of Christian visual art come from Rome and date to the beginning of the third century c.e , a time when Roman Christians weTe enjoying a brief respite from the widespread but sporadic persecutions they had suffered during the reign of Marcus Aurelius (160-180). During the relatively tolerant reign of Emperor Commodus (ISO-192), the church acquired land outside the city walls-, on the Via Appia Antica, for use as a burial ground, allowing them to inter Christian dead in cemeteries separated from their noii-Christian neighbors. This cemetery, unlike most necropoli or mau-solea from earlier times that were either just at the surface or above-ground was constructed as an underground network of branching and connecting tunnels on four different levels, containing tiers of narrow horizontal niches for individual bodies (hcuti) and openings into larger rooms (cubicula), which may have held several burials from a single family. The loculi were closed with...

The Early Christian Period

In the fourth and fifth centuries there developed different traditions of Eastern Christian monasticism. Pilgrimage both to the Holy Land - the sites made sacred by the life of Christ on earth - and to the tombs of Christian martyrs and to sites associated with holy men also became increasingly popular. An early saint who gained a reputation throughout Christendom was St Symeon the Stylite (d. 459) who spent 36 years standing on a 16-metre high pillar. This form of aerial penance did not go unnoticed and large numbers of worshippers flocked to his pillar to hear his teachings and to witness his miracles. A huge monastery in the form of a four-arm basilica was built around his pillar at Oal'at Sim'an in Syria, 75 km north-east of Antioch (see plate 18.1). Pilgrims brought back from such sacred sites, as well as from the Holy Land, small souvenirs in the form of tokens in precious or base metals, terracotta or metal ampullae which contained sacred oils and ointments, as well as carved...

Wallpainting and other arts

Old Nubian, written in Coptic script, was the everyday language, and was also used for religious and liturgical texts, alongside Greek, in monasteries and churches. Papyri and parchment have been well preserved at the site of Oasr Ibrim. Pectoral crosses, terracotta figurines and ceramic 'icons' with relief representations of saints have also been found in excavations in Nubia.

Architecture sculpture and painting

The complex of buildings at Dayr Abu Mena grew up as a pilgrimage site around the shrine of St Menas, a local saint, martyr and miracle-worker who died at the end of the fourth century. Both archaeological work and the study of literary references have contributed to an understanding of the site, which in the early twenty-first century was listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site in danger. Originally the body of the saint was transferred to a crypt under a cruciform church, but the pressure of vistor numbers led to the building campaign of the early fifth century under imperial patronage. By the end of the fifth century, at the time of Emperor Zeno, the shrine had further developed, having acquired a large basilica (about 55 m long) with wide transepts on the east side of the complex and a projecting apse, divided from the crypt and shrine of St Menas to the west by a tetraconch building between. There was a separate baptistery. With the apse used primarily for burials, the bishop's...

The emergence of Christian visual culture

What has survived has a limited provenance and milieu. The great majority of Christian artefacts come from a funerary context, especially from the Roman catacombs. Notable exceptions include terracotta lamps, finger rings, glasses or tableware that were moulded, etched or stamped with Christian motifs, dated as early as the late second or early third century. Clement of Alexandria even provides a list of appropriate motifs for signet rings, including a dove, fish, ship or anchor, but he bans images of swords, drinking cups or portraits

Visual arts

Pilgrimage tokens, like small coins made of terracotta, celebrate St Symeon the Elder. These show the figure on a column with flying angels bearing crowns on each side and figures below, probably petitioners to the saint. Such objects, cheap to produce and to buy, some engraved in Syriac, gave blessing and protection to the pilgrim. Similar imagery was repeated on objects of value, such as the votive plaque in silver gilt dating to the sixth century in the Louvre in Paris. This plaque shows the saint on his column, a shell above him, and, entwined around the column, a large snake, bearded - as is the saint - and either personifying evil or, conversely, representing the healing god Ascle-pius. It is inscribed in Greek as a thanks-offering to the saint, testimony to the deference paid to a Syrian saint in Byzantine-held Syria. It has been suggested that it could have been displayed on the wall or templon of a church in a village near Ma'arret en-Noman, where it was found.
