Christian baptisteries, 3rd–12th centuries

This interactive map visualizes a dataset of Christian baptisteries built between the 3rd and 12th centuries. The dataset represents a digital adaptation and formalization of the most complete catalogue of baptisteries by Sebastian Ristow. Of all 1067 buildings in Ristow’s catalogue, this map takes into account only those whose existence and function as baptisteries is considered certain or very probable by Ristow and which, at the same time, could be localised.
