"The Glorious Martyr"
During salvage excavations conducted south of Ramat Beit Shemesh, remains of an impressive Byzantine church were discovered. An inscription mentions that the church was built in honor of an anonymous “glorious martyr”, whose remains were kept inside. The exhibition presents finds, which shed light on the importance of the Church of the “Glorious Martyr” as a major pilgrimage site during the Byzantine Period.
