What’s All the Fuss About Stone Tombstones?
The epitome of all monastic properties is the stone tomb. This place, which is usually built into a hillock is called “Rome’s tomb”. The central section of this earth presents a huge mound of about 12 m high and 2,500 ha in extent. It is also referred as “Stones Tomb”. This mound consists of large number of small caves and cliffs with many large grottos around them.
This tomb has its origins in ancient Greece, where the rolling stone is said to have been used by the people for depositing bodies. The place was later called by the Greeks as the place of the Cave. Another form of tomb includes those of the Rhine Valley where the rolling stone is used to make coffins in later times. The place was called in German as Flachau, meaning “The place of the coffin” and “Flach” means “a bench made of flint stone”.
It is believed that the earliest form of the stone tomb was discovered in a place which is now identified as the town of Jerash. Here, a very large cave with several tombs and a huge pillar built upon it was found. This pillar was erected by the daughter of King Aqba lang mo da. The name of the woman is Asher and the stone which has been inscribed upon it is the same that has been used in Jewish tombs. This particular stone has been found to contain the name of Asher ben Azazel. This shows that the name of Asher Ben Azazel is not a common name and that it might be an original name of a queen who was buried with her husband.
Other than these two types of stone-based tombs, there are others which consist of a single column and a flat stone. The term “rolling-stone tomb” is given to such tombs. These tombstones are usually very old and date back to around 400 years. The stone that is used to make such a tomb can be either real or natural. The ones that are made of natural materials have been shaped and polished to create elaborate patterns that resemble ancient Egyptian statues and can also look like the ones found in Roman and Greek buildings.
Another interesting type of tombstone is the Josephine tombstone. This type of stone has a very interesting feature attached to it. In ancient times, when it came to naming the wives of the deceased, it was customary to name them after their birthplaces. So, if the wife happened to have an equally important birthmark across her brow, her birthmark would be considered as well. Hence, the Josephine stone that we find nowadays contains the names of the wives of Jesus.
