Abstract

In the season of 1931-32 a house belonging to Christians was discovered. One of its smaller rooms was fitted out as a chapel. Its walls are covered with the most interesting and earliest Christian paintings that have come down to us from the East. How much earlier than 200 A.D. these iconographical forms were first invented, where, and by whom, we are not yet ready to say.
