Mount Tabor - Pâques 1985

 

Mount Tabor rises 588 m above the Plain of Jezreel. It is supposed to be the site of Christ's transfiguration. In the property of the Catholic Franciscans, the Church of the Transfiguration , is constructed in light-hued limestone, in the style of ecclesiastical architecture which developed in Syria in the 4th to 6th century. The garden contains a tablet commemorating the visit of Pope Paul VI in 1964. Underneath the church building are three grottoes called tabernacles. They are supposed to be the three tabernacles which Peter wanted to build, one for the Master, the other two for Moses and Elijah.
