Discovered: 6th-century fresco of St. Paul
CWN - June 29, 2011
L’Osservatore Romano has reported the “sensational” discovery of a 6th-century fresco of St. Paul, in the catacombs of St. Januarius in Naples.
The image, discovered during restoration work in the catacombs, is “one of the most intense, austere figures of late antiquity,” the Vatican newspaper reports.
