Do these images prove that early Christianity had FEMALE priests? Vatican unveils frescoes hinting that women held power in the early Church
The 230-240 AD frescoes were found in the Catacombs of Priscilla of Rome

Another shows woman with outstretched arms like those of a priest
Vatican says assertions that these women were priests are 'fairy tales'

Newly restored Italian frescoes have revealed what could have been women priests in the early Christian Church.
The frescoes, dating back to between 230 to 240 AD, are housed inside the Catacombs of Priscilla of Rome and were unveiled by the Vatican this week.
Proponents of a female priesthood have said that the frescoes prove there were women priests in early Christianity.
The Vatican, however, has responded by saying that such assertions are sensationalist 'fairy tales'.
