byzantine church wall

 

apparently, the last people to inhabit masada was a group of early christians during the 5th to 7th centuries well after the jewish revolt of 73 ad.

amongst the many ruins found on masada is a byzantine church that apparently dates back to the 5th century. here is a photograph of a church wall with an arched window under beautiful morning light.
