Pompeii
Chaste lovers
The kiss



This wall painting of a decently dressed pair, kissing one another gave the house it's name of the chaste lovers. Archeologists hopefully saw this as a possible sign, this house belonged to an early christian. Because of the decency. Other pictures in this house contradict this view; as does the fact that nowhere in Pompeii a single sign of christianity has been found. The Roman catholic leaders in the 15th century would show the same decadence. A great number of pictures of that age show priests with little boys, preluding of what was to come.
