Description:

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 #

Book Description Societas Scietiarium Fennica, 2016. Condition: new. Jabal H?r?n (the Mountain of the Prophet Aaron), located near the ancient city of Petra in southern Jordan, is according to Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions, the burial place of Aaron, Moses’ brother. Since 1997, the Finnish Jabal H?r?n Project (FJHP), directed by Prof. Jaakko Frösén and funded by the Academy of Finland and the University of Helsinki, has carried out archaeological excavations at a Byzantine monastery located on the high plateau of the mountain. Volume II, which is the third and final publication of the FJHP publication series, is a major exposition of all excavated structures and the material remains associated with the entire occupation of the site (1st century A.D. – 11th/12th century A.D.), with the exception of the church and the chapel (FJHP volume I, 2008). Including 30 contributors and 23 chapters, this volume presents a wide range of subjects related to the history and archeology of the site and its structures. The publication concludes with a major presentation of the cultural history of the site. In addition, the volume is accompanied with a DVD that displays a virtual model and tour of the excavated church and the chapel.
