The International Catacomb Society promotes awareness of the need for preservation, restoration, and documentation of the catacombs in Rome (with a special focus on the Jewish catacombs) and other sites, which contain paintings, epigraphy, and artifacts depicting the cultures and customs of early religions under the Roman Empire.
Vaults of Memory
Vaults of Memory offers twentieth-century viewers a record of the catacombs of Rome. Glimpses of the Jewish catacombs of Villa Torlonia and Vigna Randanini, as well as of Christian and pagan cemeteries, document the present condition of paintings still visible on the walls and ceilings of these underground burial places.
