The publication documents the relics of the wall paintings from the Early Christian cathedral discovered in Faras by the team of Polish archeologists led by Prof. Kazimierz Michałowski in 1961–1964 in connection with building the Aswan Dam. For each painting, metric data, location and state of preservation are provided. The catalogue is richly illustrated with the photographs of paintings before they were taken off the walls and after conservation, and a table of all the ornaments and patterns depicted in the paintings as well as concordance tables and index.

The discovery, which revolutionized knowledge of the Middle Nile region and put the Christian kingdoms of Nubia on the scientific map, was made as part of the UNESCO Nubian Campaign salvaging the antiquities of Nubia. It follows on the first volume by Włodzimierz Godlewski which presented the architecture of the cathedral (Pachoras. The Cathedrals of Aetios, Paulos and Petros. The Architecture).

The catalogue was written and edited by Stefan Jakobielski with the contribution of several colleagues working on different issues connected with the iconography of these murals. Their findings are enhanced by remarkable and well researched drawings, as well as a useful foldout timeline to help understand the long history of the painted decoration inside the cathedral.

Keywords: Faras, Pachoras, cathedrals of Aetios, Paulos, Petros, Nubia, Kazimierz Michałowski, PCMA.

Stefan Jakobielski – a Nubiologist of world repute and one of the founders of the Society of Nubian Studies, is one of the few still active members of the original excavation team that worked in Faras in the early 1960s. He took part in the excavation, cooperated with the team of conservators that took down the murals and oversaw their transport to Warsaw. Foremost he studied the inscriptions from the cathedral walls, publishing most importantly the List of Bishops from Pachoras. He went on to work at several sites in Egypt and Syria before directing his own project in Dongola in Sudan (from 1966 to 2006). Jakobielski, who continues to work for the Institute of Mediterranean and Oriental Cultures of the Polish Academy of Sciences, is the author of numerous publications and editor of scientific journals, including Nubia, Études et Travaux, Nubica et Aethiopica and Bibliotheca nubica. Since 2005 he has coedited the Gdańsk Archaeological Museum African Reports.
