Since Jesus declared poverty and humility to be the most important Christian virtues, the question inevitably arises as to why the church accepted architectural ornamentation and the public display of artistic pomp. At first glance, early Christian art appears to be a mere clone, or at best an identical twin, of its Greco-Roman counterpart, and there is indeed no denying the fact that early Christian art is based on the Greco-Roman artisan tradition and mindset. This chapter first discusses a broader context the issue of the acceptance of the pictorial religious image in Christianity. Next, it discusses baptism and baptisteries, and explores the impact the church has on the believer through the medium of art and architecture after acceptance of Christ and baptism. Then, the chapter examines how the church markets salvation to believers through the medium of art. Finally, it discusses subjects of Christian archaeology such as catacombs and mausoleums and their decorative accoutrements.
