Praise God and Pass the Tartar Sauce?

The early Christians of Rome ate a diet including much more fish than their pagan neighbors, according to a new analysis of catacomb burials.

Chemical analysis of the bones of Christians buried in catacombs showed higher levels of nitrogen and lower levels of carbon compared with other burial sites, indicating a diet composed of around 30% freshwater fish. This may disprove an earlier hypothesis that Christians in Rome, while avoiding meats of sacrifice, ate otherwise the same food as non-Christian Romans.
