Byzantine Church, Amman Reviews
The icon figures mosaic floor tiles were well preserved under the rubble from earlier fire and earthquake damage. Work in progress continues by archaeologists and still requires sponsors to continue restoration tasks,
Very interesting. We were lucky enough to have a local who told us about the history.
Great mosaic on the ground. You can see a baptism chamber in the rear. Good restoration.
This is the main church of the complex comprising the Petra Church, the Blue Church and the Ridge Church. The Petra Church has a tripartite basilica measuring 26 x 15 meters with three inscribed apses and three corresponding entrances. It was probably built in the last half of the fifth century AD. The church’s preserved mosaic floor, sheltered under a protecting ceiling, has beautiful illustrations. Many of these images lie inside circular medallions and depict animals, birds, humans, vegetable produce, and vessels, as well as personifications of the four seasons, the ocean, earth and wisdom. This complex of three churches was built over earlier Nabatean buildings and tombs, which remained in the use throughout the Roman period before Christianity became dominant in Petra in the fifth century AD, at which time some buildings and tombs were converted to churches. The carved figures found inside the Petra Church, for example, are Nabatean, suggesting that these may have been recovered from an earlier temple.
Amazing covered floors are found in this church built in around 450 ( amazing! ) :-) I over use that word around here! It was discovered in 1990 and was excavated in 1992-1998. They found 152 papyrus scrolls in the church - the largest ancient written material found in Jordan - and was carbon dated to the 7th C. History!
