Art restorers in Italy have discovered what are believed to be the oldest paintings of some of Jesus Christ's apostles.
The faces of Apostles Andrew, John, Peter and Paul were uncovered using new laser technology in a catacomb in Rome.
The paintings date from the second half of the 4th Century or the early 5th Century, the restorers and Vatican officials believe.
The images may have influenced later depictions of Christ's early followers.
