The Maltese paleochristian catacombs are amongst the most important early Christian monuments south of Rome. The islands are rich in these type of burial sites which date to the late Roman and Byzantine period, of which many are found on the Rabat plateau, immediately outside the Mdina ditch. In fact the Abbatija tad Dejr site can be found in the area known as Nigret, on the outskirts of Rabat in the face of a low hill overlooking Gheriexem Valley.

The Maltese ancient Christian tombs form regular and frequently sizeable cemeteries below ground level. Several graves are commonly found within the same hypogeum, access to which is provided through one common entrance. The Abbatija tad-Dejr consists of four hypogea (chambers) tunneled next to each other with the first hypogeum being the largest. It is the latest of all the early Christian catacombs found in Malta being excavated during the shifting phase from underground to above ground burials.

Even though these catacombs are smaller than those of Rome, Naples, Syracuse and Sousse, they are very richly decorated. This complex shows evidence of architectural design features such as: sculpted scallop shells, arched pottery shelves, pilasters with pseudo-Corinthian capitals, roundels with the chi-rho monogram (a Christian monogram and symbol formed from the first two letters X and P of the Greek word for Christ), fish-scale decoration, palm fronds, Latin crosses and curled volutes.

The Tal-Abbatija tad Dejr site also has a rock-cut church attached to the catacombs. The church is quite small and rectangular with an altar niche, low carved side benches and a rock-carved pillar which acts as a support for the roof. One of the most important aspects of this church is the painting that was found within the carved niche. This painting shows three figures: a Crucifixion in the middle with the Virgin on one side and the Archangel Gabriel on the other. This painting had been relocated in the past and can now be viewed at the National Museum of Fine Arts. Other painted remains in the catacombs are negligible making this painting one of Malta’s earliest existing paintings, possibly datable to the fourteenth century.

Various painted and architectural details indicate that religious activities were still being carried out in this church on a constant base till after 1530. Proof to this are remains of a preliminary drawing of two haloed heads, possibly belonging to two medieval religious figures and two shields carrying respectively the coat of arms of the Knights of St John and the Kingdom of Sicily. Mass was celebrated in this chapel up till 1575 after which it was closed by order of Mons. Dusina due to its poor condition.

Sammelschwerpunkte/Main collections
The museum illustrates chronologically the cultural history of the Island of Gozo from prehistoric times to the early modern period.
The Museum of Archaeology is located within the walls of the Citadel just behind the old gate. It is housed in a seventeenth century building, Palazzo Bondi, which originally served as a town hall where the Knights of St John used to receive their distinguished visitors. At one time, it was the residence of a prominent Gozitan family after whom the Palace is named.

In 1937, on the initiative of Sir Harry Luke, a former Lieutenant Governor of Malta, this town house in the Spanish Renaissance style was restored. In 1960, it was inaugurated as the first public museum in Gozo and exhibited archaeological as well as ethnographic artefacts. Following refurbishment, it was re-opened in 1986 as the Archaeology Museum of Gozo.

The ground floor is devoted to the Neolithic Period, the Temple Period, and the Bronze Age (5200–700BC) and houses a selection of decorated potsherds, pottery vessels, stone and bone implements and pendants from various settlements and tombs. There are also relics from Ggantija Temples. A multi-media installation gives you a complete reconstruction of the megalithic temple. The Bronze Age section displays a group of miniature clay containers and a decorated double-pot and some fragmented clay votive anchors.

The first floor is devoted to the Phoenician, Punic, Roman, Medieval, and Knights’ periods. The collections on display include jewellery, coins, marble statues, inscriptions, oil lamps, and part of a limestone olive-pipper. There is also a selection of funerary urns found in rock-cut tombs around Gozo, while the ‘Xlendi room’ houses artefacts from underwater wrecks of Classical antiquity recovered from the bay in 1961.

The collection also includes a number of inscriptions. The oldest was carved in Punic characters in the second century BC to commemorate the building and restoration of sanctuaries. Another interesting and touching inscription is that carved on Majmuna’s tombstone, which laments the death of a young Muslim girl at the age of twelve. (c) Heritage Malta

Sammelschwerpunkte/Main collections
The mosaic pavements in the ‘Roman house’ at Rabat rank among the finest and oldest mosaic compositions from the western Mediterranean, alongside those of Pompeii and Sicily. They were discovered in 1881 just outside Mdina in the remains of a rich and sumptuously decorated town house of the Roman period.

These remarkably fine polychrome mosaic pavements were uncovered during the first excavations at the site. At that time, architectural elements of the building were restored and a number of rooms constructed over the remains to protect the mosaics.

The site was investigated further between 1920 and 1924 by Sir Themistocles Zammit, Malta’s first Director of Museums. An upper hall was added to the existing museum so as to provide more exhibition space and a more suitable entrance. Its neo-classical façade with a small front garden was completed in 1925.

The mosaics are composed using two techniques. Small cubes of marble or stone are embedded closely together in cement in a reticular manner. The very minuteness of the pieces, which are not always set in straight lines but vary in direction to suit the artist’s requirements, brought out greater definition in the work which sought to imitate painting.

Parts of these mosaics were created by highly-skilled artists working in specialized workshops notably at Pergamum in Asia Minor, Antioch in Syria and Alexandria in Egypt, and were exported for setting in mosaic floors finished off on the spot by itinerant or local artists.

The mosaic pavement surrounded by a Doric peristyle can be found in the lower floor of the museum. The pavement shows two doves perched on the rim of a bowl. Other extremely fine mosaics were found in the adjoining rooms. One image shows a charming little boy holding a bunch of grapes in one hand and a pomegranate in the other. The iconography is generally taken as an allegorical representation of autumn. Another equally fine mosaic was the centrepiece of the mosaic pavement in what seems to have been the main entrance to the building. It shows a nude male figure held fast by two women.

The best tradition of Hellenistic pictorial culture, together with the extremely fine technique, undoubtedly qualify the mosaic compositions of the Roman house in Rabat among the finest examples of Hellenistic mosaic art, dating probably from the first quarter of the first century B.C.

The Roman House also has an exhibition of artefacts which bear witness to the rich material culture and flourishing Roman civilisation in Malta. (c) Heritage Malta

Sammelschwerpunkte/Main collections
The Museum houses a wide range of exhibits depicting the domestic, rural and traditional ways of life in the agrarian economy of the Maltese and Gozitans in centuries past.
The Museum is located in the apt setting of medieval houses in Milite Bernardo Street in the Citadel. The houses were probably built towards the end of the 15th or the beginning of the 16th century. The architectural features are in Sicilian style, and may owe something to the influence of the Chiaramonte family of Sicily and southern Italy when they were Counts of Malta in the late 14th century. It seems probable that this style survived locally after it had become obsolete in Sicily.

The rustic domestic interiors are relatively plain, but pleasant, and contrast sharply with the more delicate facades with their rounded doorways, double windows divided by a slender column and the finely carved stonework. The houses are considered as an outstanding example of late medieval domestic architecture. To ensure their preservation, these houses were rehabilitated into a Folklore Museum in 1983.

The exhibits displayed on the ground floor levels relate to rural trades and skills such as agriculture and stone-masonry. Here, you’ll find various traditional, agricultural implements including sickles, spades, winnowing forks, shovels and ploughs, together with a selection of grinding mills of various sizes, both manual and beast-driven.

There are also traditional stone-dressing tools as well as a large selection of tools used by carpenters and blacksmiths. Grain and liquid measures, as well as different types of weights and scales used in steelyards and by grocers, are also on display. The mezzanine floor exhibits domestic, and important, Gozitan crafts such as lace-making and weaving as well as minor ones such as book-binding.

The first floor, which used to be living quarters, hosts an exhibition of items relating to hobbies such as hunting as well as the modeling of miniature churches, replete with religious accessories.

On the same floor, there is also an interesting selection of traditional costumes, a collection of elaborately-worked clay statuettes, an ex-voto collection, and a number of furniture items typical of an urban house, even if in a rural environment. An entire room is devoted to the traditional fishing industry. (c) Heritage Malta
