About this Item

The Mountain of Aaron is the first of three final publication reports by the Finnish Jabal Harun Project (FJHP), which excavated an early Christian church and monastic complex between 1997 and 2005 (an additional season in 2007 is briefly mentioned in this volume and its results will appear in future publications). This complex is located on a plateau below the summit of Jabal Harun, a few kilometers from the famous Nabataean city of Petra. Since the first century CE, Jabal Harun has been identified as the location of the death of the Prophet Aaron. This volume focuses on a church and chapel which were discovered at the site, while future volumes will concentrate on a Nabataean cult complex, the monastic/hostel structure, and the archaeological survey of the region. The church and chapel were constructed sometime after the mid-fifth century and remained inhabited until at least the ninth or tenth century. Bookseller Inventory # FIEPETRA
