Gladiators, Christians and Fish

antique roman history antique roman history

Christian persecutions are also closely associated with the catacombs. Underground labyrinths used as both burial complexes as well as hiding places. The catacombs grew in use during the persecutions of the second to fourth centuries by which time Christianity became a tolerated religion and they fell into disuse. In them, it is not unusual to find symbols of the fish carved into the wall or a piece of marble.
