Winter break, Jordan - Madaba - 17 December 2007
Orthodox Greek Church of Saint George, Madaba. The '2nd church' raised after Jerusalem. Under the Byzantine, Madaba became the centre of a fluorishing school of 'mosaics' workers. The church housed the remains of a famous floor mosaic (from the Byzantine period) where a geographic map of Palestine is depicted. In the mosaic the location of the cities of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jerico and, the river Jordan, Lake Tiberias, the Dead Sea and Prophet Luth's (Lot) cave sanctuary can be recognised.
