  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Rome 
  the  most  celebrated  city  in  the  world  at  the  time  of  Christ.  It 
  is  said  to  have  been  founded  B.C.  753.  When  the  New  Testament 
  was  written,  Rome  was  enriched  and  adorned  with  the  spoils  of 
  the  world,  and  contained  a  population  estimated  at  1,200,000,  of 
  which  the  half  were  slaves,  and  including  representatives  of 
  nearly  every  nation  then  known  It  was  distinguished  for  its 
  wealth  and  luxury  and  profligacy.  The  empire  of  which  it  was  the 
  capital  had  then  reached  its  greatest  prosperity. 
 
  On  the  day  of  Pentecost  there  were  in  Jerusalem  "strangers 
  from  Rome,"  who  doubtless  carried  with  them  back  to  Rome  tidings 
  of  that  great  day  and  were  instrumental  in  founding  the  church 
  there  Paul  was  brought  to  this  city  a  prisoner,  where  he 
  remained  for  two  years  (Acts  28:30,  31)  "in  his  own  hired 
  house."  While  here  Paul  wrote  his  epistles  to  the  Philippians, 
  to  the  Ephesians  to  the  Colossians  to  Philemon,  and  probably 
  also  to  the  Hebrews.  He  had  during  these  years  for  companions 
  Luke  and  Aristarchus  (Acts  27:2),  Timothy  (Phil.  1:1;  Col.  1:1), 
  Tychicus  (Eph.  6:  21),  Epaphroditus  (Phil.  4:18),  and  John  Mark 
  (Col.  4:10).  (See  {PAUL}.) 
 
  Beneath  this  city  are  extensive  galleries,  called  "catacombs," 
  which  were  used  from  about  the  time  of  the  apostles  (one  of  the 
  inscriptions  found  in  them  bears  the  date  A.D.  71)  for  some 
  three  hundred  years  as  places  of  refuge  in  the  time  of 
  persecution,  and  also  of  worship  and  burial.  About  four  thousand 
  inscriptions  have  been  found  in  the  catacombs.  These  give  an 
  interesting  insight  into  the  history  of  the  church  at  Rome  down 
  to  the  time  of  Constantine.
