  • A Christian Was Here | On Pilgrimage
    wrote prayers like these Pray holy souls that that Verecundus and his family may have a safe voyage Holy souls remember Marcianus Successus Severus and all our brothers and sisters St Sixtus remember Aurelius Repentinus in your prayers They also recalled their dead for instance Leontus may you live in eternal life Dionysius may you live in God Often the writing of the graffiti had a healing and renewing effect In the same catacombs of Callistus a Christian grieving over the loss of a loved one wrote her name all over the walls He began by writing on the vestibule to the principal sanctuary Sofronia may you live with your own then at the entrance itself Sofronia may you live in the Lord His mood became more and more confidant and jubilant as he went into the holy place where the saints were buried Near the main altar tomb in one chapel he wrote the joyful affirmation Sweet Sofronia you will LIVE forever in God And finally underneath like a triumphant echo Sofronia YOU LIVE Some other ancient graffiti found in Rome give us a vivid glimpse of the ridicule Christians often had to face from their pagan neighbors Near the imperial palace there was a building used as a school for the young slave boys destined to serve as pages in the Emperor s household The walls of the ruins are covered with graffiti by the boys complaining of the harshness of life in the school and celebrating their graduation into imperial service Alexemenos worships his God satirical graffito in Rome Several of the graffiti also show what life was like for the young Christian slaves there In one a student mockingly calls another boy Libanus the bishop The most famous is a drawing of a man with a donkey s head nailed to a cross with a young boy standing next to him Underneath are the words Alexamenos is worshiping his God For pagans death on the cross the punishment of slaves and traitors was the greatest shame imaginable and they constantly ridiculed Christians belief that Christ a crucified criminal could also be God Another graffito nearby reads Alexamenos the faithful one Is this another insult or Alexamenos reply to his tormentors Religious graffiti dating from the Middle Ages have been found in churches all over Europe including the porches of the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris The pillars of many medieval churches are covered with crosses drawn by pilgrims marking the beginning or end of their journeys to religious shrines In the time of Charlemagne priests who had the longed for privilege of celebrating Mass at the Altar of the Confession in St Peter s in Rome often wrote their names on the wall to record the event In fact scholars believe that the skill in writing and the knowledge of Latin displayed in medieval graffiti mean that the majority of them were probably written by priests Many of the visitors to English churches in the Middle Ages wrote their names and sometimes verses from Scripture on the walls One such prayer found in a convent church in Elstow is the prayer of the Good Thief Lord remember me when you come into your kingdom A visitor to the church of St Mary the Virgin in Gamlingay Cambridgeshire wrote this somber meditation Death is like a shadow which always follows the body In the Church of St Margaret in Cowlinge Suffolk a devotee of Mary wrote a Latin poem which translates as Whensoever you go by me Whether man woman or boy you be Bear in mind you do not fail To say in passing Mary Hail The medieval graffiti on the walls of Russian churches frequently express the humility and soul searching of the writer Lord forgive me thy sinful slave Stefan more sinful than all men in word and deed and thought Or Vlas wrote this wretched and rich in sin Some less guilt stricken could think of nothing better to write than Ivan was here Graffiti writing was practiced in the very highest places in Russia in the section of the choir of the church of Santa Sophia in Kiev reserved for the royal family one 12th century graffito reads Lord help thy slave Olisava Sviatopolk s mother a Russian princess Many years later Olisava s young grandsons wrote their own names below hers But Russians did not write devotional graffiti only in churches The remains of the 12th century Golden Gate in Vladmir are covered with crosses drawn by soldiers invoking God s help as they stood there to defend the city in battle Some of the most fascinating and historically important religious graffiti were discovered in 1941 during excavations under St Peter s basilica in Rome by archaeologists searching for the tomb of the first Pope Under the high altar they found what they believed to be Peter s original earth grave erected beside the Circus of Nero where he had met his death by crucifixion It was in the middle of a first century cemetery surrounded by both Christian and pagan tombs Next to the original shrine of Peter was a plaster wall covered with graffiti scratched by the faithful Most of them wrote their names or the names of friends and relatives But the excavators were surprised to find that Peter s name was never written in full on the wall though it could be found in other ancient graffiti in Rome Professor Margherita Guarducci who studied the inscriptions finally unlocked the secret Peter s name was there but had been overlooked the apostle was represented by the mysterious symbol It was made up of the first two letters of Peter s name and also resembled a key a sign of the keys of the kingdom given to him by Jesus Scholars believe that because Christians were afraid that Peter s tomb might be desecrated or destroyed by pagans during the persecutions they had to keep its location a

  • A Forger’s Conspiracy or “The Word Made Visible”? The Continued Controversy over the James Ossuary | On Pilgrimage
    Jerusalem and thought to be the author of the New Testament Epistle of James He was condemned to death by stoning by the Sanhedrin in 62 A D Both André Lemaire the Catholic paleographer expert in ancient writing who published the discovery in the November December 2002 Biblical Archaeology Review and the journal s editor Hershel Shanks contend that the IAA s conclusions are deeply flawed In an interview with OSV Shanks noted that two previous scientific teams who examined the ossuary from the Geological Survey of Israel and the Royal Ontario Museum still stand by their conclusion that the ossuary contains an authentic first century inscription Shanks is now calling for re examination of the ossuary by an unbiased international team of the highest repute He admits that this may be difficult since the IAA must agree to allow the ossuary to be exported for testing and the IAA is irritated with us because we published an analysis of their report which is very condemnatory Joseph Fitzmyer S J a renowned Biblical scholar and expert in Aramaic who was one of the first people to see photographs of the inscription after it was found also believes that new testing is in order He says that one archaeologist on the team Ronny Reich who had originally declared the inscription authentic changed his mind after the committee studying the patina said it had been forged Fitzmyer says the IAA tried to give the impression that the committees that were set up came out with a unanimous decision and it s not unanimous at all So far the IAA team has not published its results in a scholarly journal Flawed Geochemistry In an upcoming article in the January February Biblical Archaeology Review James Harrell a geologist with the University of Toledo says that the evidence the IAA team relied on does not support the conclusion that the inscription is a forgery He attacks the conclusions of two IAA team members geochemist Avner Ayalon and microanalysis specialist Yuval Goren They studied the ossuary s patina a coating formed when stone reacts with water and then re crystalizes They found that the patina over the inscription had a different composition of oxygen isotopes than on the rest of the box meaning that the patina in the inscription was formed by much hotter water than occurs naturally in caves in Jerusalem They concluded that this imitation patina was made by dissolving chalk perhaps scrapings from the ossuary itself in hot water and rubbing it into the inscription Harrell disputes this conclusion First ground calcite will not dissolve in hot water Second undissolved calcite immersed in hot water will not exchange oxygen isotopes with the water and so will not have a d18O value reflecting the water s temperature Shanks points out that the IAA team members found ancient patina inside one of the letters which means that the inscription is ancient they even admit that the imitation patina may simply be residue from the cleaning of the inscription A Forgers Conspiracy Shanks has repeatedly stated his belief that the IAA team was biased since the Israeli government has been trying to stop antiquities collectors who deal in items like the ossuary which do not come from authorized archaeological excavations He adds that now the IAA is determined to prove there was a conspiracy to forge the inscription They ve questioned a hundred people and Uzi Dahari Deputy Director of the IAA told me personally that there s a conspiracy and that it included an honored Israeli archaeologist In fact Israeli authorities arrested Golan on suspicion of forgery in July but then released him to date he has not been charged with any crime Shanks says that if Golan s claim that he has owned the ossuary for several decades is true he is unlikely to be a forger Forgers do it mainly to raise money A forger doesn t forge it and let it sit for two decades without anyone knowing about it The Word Made Visible The ossuary has continued to fascinate Christians of all denominations Ben Witherington a Protestant Biblical scholar who wrote a book along with Shanks The Brother of Jesus Harper San Francisco says that because of its possible close physical connection with Jesus the ossuary can be called the Word made visible Though Fitzmyer believes that the ossuary s inscription may be authentic he says there would be great difficulty proving that it refers to the New Testament James He says that the inscription might be interpreted to mean that it was Joseph who had a brother named Jesus He adds that other ossuaries have been found reading Jesus the son of Joseph names that were common in Jerusalem at the time The spot where Golan says it was found the village of Silwan on the lower slope of the Mount of Olives is very close to the traditional burial place of St James Fourth century monks claimed to have discovered his body there and built a chapel over it But Fitzmyer cautions You have to remember that hill was the burial place for ancient Jerusalem and hundreds of ossuaries have come from there Shanks says that new scientific tests that should be done on the ossuary including chemical testing of the patina and microscopic examination of the weathering inside the inscription He also thinks that depositions should be taken about Golan s claims of ownership He says he s not defending the authenticity of the ossuary as much as he is the principle of unbiased scholarly research It s obviously of enormous significance if it is authentic and we should make every effort to determine that whatever it takes But don t set up a committee like a court to make a decision Lori Pieper writes from New York Sidebar James the Son of Joseph For Catholics an authentic ossuary of James would certainly be an important historical find But there is a crucial difficulty how James could be
