Early Christian funerary art from the Roman ca...Early Christian art often depicted birds such as doves and the phoenix
My Humanities class is getting to me... I bought a dove figurine today for the living room. We've been studying the significance of doves in artwork to early Christians (4th century if I remember correctly). Even more interesting is the significance of the phoenix to early Christians but it's a little bit harder to find a phoenix figurine, LOL. Either way, my studies have inspired me to want to bring the image of a dove in to my daily life to remind me of all its meaning in Christianity. I'm really enjoying studying early Christianity and the Church and it's deepening my understanding of where modern Christianity came from.
