    ... 400AD, the pagan temple was torn down and the building was converted to the Cathedral of John the Baptist. The arrival of the Arabs around 600AD yielded no change, allowing the Christians to continue with their worship. Around 700AD and with the Arab population expanding, the Caliph Al-Walid negotiated with the Christian community ...

    ... but I found it more disturbing insofar as people would parade through the small dark, shrine kissing, stroking and venerating the ‘object’ (silver doors in a wall, which presumably protected St. Luke’s painting), bringing their infirm of mind and body to look for a miracle. They would whisper their prayers in hushed tones, lighting candles and approaching a nun who stood guard over all. They would whisper in her ear, ...
