The Lullingstone Christian Wall Plaster.
by G W Meates.

The Trustees of the British Museum have acquired the ownership of the late fourth century Christian Wall Plaster, which originally adorned the walls of the House-Church in the Lullingstone Roman Villa, depicting the sacred Chi Rho monogram and figures of Christians in the attitude of prayer. This has been removed to premises in London, where further work on the piecing together of the fragments will take place. The intention is to mount and place on permanent exhibition in the Museum sections of the completed work, thus providing in the national collections an important addition to knowledge of early Christianity in Roman Britain.
