Dura-Europos church in Syria
- Dura-Europos (“Fort Europos“) is a ruined Hellenistic-Roman walled city built on cliff 90 meters above the banks of the Euphrates river. It is located near the village of Salhiyé, in today’s Syria. It was constructed early in the third century and was converted for use as a Christian church at some point between 240-250 CE.
- Several walls still standing, oldest images of Jesus discovered within the surviving frescoes of the large baptistry room. Fragments of parchment scrolls with Hebrew texts unearthed containing Christian Eucharistic prayers closely connected with the prayers in the Didache.
