Bethlehem

Columns from the days of Constantine in the Church of the Nativity.

This church has artifacts in place as they have been for the last 2,000 years. When the Persians destroyed all the churches they spared this one because it had images of the three wisemen who were dressed like the Persians themselves. So, they spared this church.

The chapel above the nativity cave.
Mosaic floors placed here by Helena, Constantine's mother. The church was dedicated by Constantine on May 31, 339 AD.
Columns decorated and still remain from the Crusaders.
