dc.description.abstractIn 1955, construction began on a new apartment building located between the Via Latina and the Via Dino Compagni, two streets in southeast Rome. Workers pouring concrete for the building's foundation were surprised to see the material quickly disappear into the ground. When they traced the seepage to its origin, they discovered a catacomb that had been sealed and hidden from public access centuries earlier. Deep within the catacomb is a fresco of a woman and a man standing on either side of a well. This paper analyzes the fresco known as "Christ and the Samaritan Woman" of the Via Latina Catacomb.en_US
