Early Christian is the beginning of known Christian subjects. Most Early Christian art is located in Rome it’s found in the catatombs; (Latin word for in the hollow)  a vast subterranean networks of passageways and chambers designed as cemeteries for burying the Christian dead.  Similar to the Etruscan tombs but not as elaborate the galleries run 60 to 90 miles an unbelievable sum of four million body are buried in this galleries. Christianity was spread into the massive empire that its today that thanks to Constatine. He believed that the Christian god had leaded him to victory, and so began his lifelong journey for spreading and maintaining Christianity alive. Constatine wanted to provide buildings to house Christian rituals, however he did not want to destroy the traditional Roman architecture instead he chose to renovate and add Christian motif to the old Roman buildings. He became a patron for the Christian church building numerous basilica, memorials, and mausoleums: name derived from fourth-century B.C.E. tomb of Mausolos at Halikarnossos which is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The greatest church Constatine build is the Old Saint Peter’s which stands in the spot where he believed that Peter the first apostle had being buried. He is also responsible for building many more architecture such as Santa Constanza, the mausoleum of Galla Placidia, and Sant’ Apollinare Nuovo.
