New Roman Catacomb Publication: S. Heid, Wohnen wie in Katakomben: Kleine Museumsgeschichte des Campo Santo Teutonico (Regensburg: Schnell & Steiner, 2016)

Announcing a new Roman catacomb publication, Wohnen wie in Katakomben : Kleine Museumsgeschichte des Campo Santo Teutonicoby Mons. Stefan Heid, professor of liturgy and hagiography at the Pontifical Institute of Christian Archaeology and director of the Römischen Instituts der Görres-Gesellschaft (Vatican). 

This is a history of the private collection of early Christian medieval objects that was founded in 1876 by Fr. Anton de Waal (1837-1917), director of historical and archaeological studies at the Vatican's Teutonic College.  Included in the small but extremely significant collection are grave inscriptions, sarcophagi, lamps, vials, jars, coins, stamped bricks, and more.  De Waal obtained these pieces from the Roman antiquities market as well as from excavations in course and private donation.  The collection is housed in the Chapel of the Confraternity of Our Lady of Sorrows (Santa Maria della Pietà) in The Teutonic College's Camposanto.

Heid's publication can be ordered here: http://www.schnell-und-steiner.de/artikel_8878.ahtml.

“The Nike Chariot Earring” starring ICS Co-Founder Florence Z. Wolsky at MA IFF Friday August 26 at 7 p.m.

Karen Audette's award-winning documentary, The Nike Chariot Earring", relates a crime story stranger than fiction, and with a happy ending!  All thanks to Florence Z. Wolsky, International Catacomb Society co-founder and longtime staff member of the Department of the Art of the Ancient World at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, who would never let a treasure of Classical Greece fall into the hands of modern day barbarians.  Her determined sleuthing is the focus of Audette's account of the theft and recovery of "the most valuable object ever taken from an American museum" up to that time, in 1963.

There will be a showing of "The Nike Chariot Earring" at the Massachusetts Independent Film Festival on Friday, August 26 at 7 p.m. at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle Street, Cambridge, MA.  For tickets, please visit the site, http://www.massiff.org/.  For the Nike Chariot earring, visit the Museum of Fine Arts - thanks to Florence, it's still there!
