View looking east through the entrance to a small Byzantine Church on the Plateau of Masada.


The church was built by Euthymius around AD 422.  Like almost all Byzantine Churches, the apse is on the east side of the building.  A community of Byzantine monks lived at Masada (then called Marda) from the 5th through the 7th century.
