How to Make a Roman Wax Tabula

To commemorate Sts. Zechariah & Elizabeth on September 5th, consider making a real Roman Wax Tabula similar to the one St. Zechariah may have used to write “His name is John.”. In Luke 1:57-80, we read of Zechariah’s naming of St. John the Baptist. “And he asked for a writing tablet and wrote, “His name is John.” And they all wondered. And immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, blessing God.” A tablula, Latin for tablet, would likely have been made with a wood frame and filled with beeswax on which one would write with a stylus made of wood or bone.

    This is so delightfully nerdy. I totally geeked out on this. The instructions call for chiseling wood and heating bees wax on the stove, but we opted to use what we had on hand that was more suitable for my six year old to work with. This was so much fun!
    If you are studying ancient history this year, have a book like Detectives in Togas on your reading list, or wish to celebrate the commemoration of St. Zechariah, go download the FREE instructions.
