At present, the archives of the International Catacomb Society contain approximately 5,000 photographic images, which are completely digitized and cataloged in an online database. The strengths of the DAPICS collection include the Jewish catacombs of Rome, epigraphy from the catacombs, early Christian churches in Rome, and early Christian and Jewish iconography. DAPICS hosts a complete set of color images from Joseph Wilpert's Le pitture delle catacombe romane (1903) and selections from private collections generously donated to DAPICS, and, for the most part, unpublished and unique.
