St. Agnes Catacombs?


I was looking up some things re: Mary and one of the web-pages mention a fresco that can be found in St. Agnes’ Catacombs.

I tried to find other web-pages re: frescos and St. Agnes’ Catacombs, but I’m not having any luck.

So I was wondering if anyone here could point me in the right direction.

I’m mainly looking for:

  1. Are there frescos in St. Agnes’ Catacombs?
  2. Is there really a fresco in St. Agnes’ Catacombs that has Mary situated between St. Peter and St. Paul with her arms outstretched to both?
  3. If there really is such as fresco when was it painted?

Moderators: I wasn’t sure where this belonged that is why I put it here. If it needs to be moved please do so.


This made it to the second page. So I thought I would give it ONE bump.

Thanks and God Bless

I thank-you for the reply. I had already seen that web-site before posting. It really doesn’t answer the questions I had in the first post.

Thanks again for the reply.
