The Pontifical Commission for Sacred Archaeology (PCAS) is delighted to announce that it has concluded an affiliation agreement with EAGLE. The Pontifical Commission was created by Pope Pius IX (January 6, 1852) to take care of the ancient sacred cemeteries, look after their preventive preservation, further explorations, research and study, and also safeguard the oldest mementos of the early Christian centuries. PCAS will put at the disposal of scholars of epigraphy its rich Photo Archive with thousands of pagan and Christian inscriptions from the catacombs of Italy with the aim to making the epigraphic material more accessible, not only to researchers, but also to teachers and learners, and to a wider public in a fruitful collaboration with other partners of EAGLE. PCAS is supported by Regesta.exe, an internet company specialized in shared web Multimedia Archives and Linked Data Technologies that provides services in the Cultural Heritage sector.
