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
behaviour 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?"
