The Crosses of Pompeii: Christianity Right Under Pagan Noses

Interesting interview about an interesting book. It turns out that Pompeii is simply crawling with early Christian crosses!

It also turns out that Christians worked at a bakery, a la the Story Keepers animated series. Heh.

Insula Arriana Polliana, where the bakery was, was owned by Gnaeus Alleius Nigidius Maius. Here’s his house, which was part of the same block as the Insula.
