Pictures and Drawings of Christian Rome

This is a series of pictures, etchings, and recreations of Christian art and artifacts from the first four centuries AD in Rome. Some of these are especially interesting (I've always liked #2, which is sometimes thought to be Daniel, but which I think works better as various interpretations of Christ- the one with the Shepherd carrying the lamb on his shoulders is my favorite). And, for our Catholic friends, please note #8 (pictured above), which includes both Bishop Cornelius of Rome and Bishop Cyprian of Carthage being held in equal stature :)
