Latin (Roman Catholic) Church, Taybeh (includes the municipality
website and the very
famous International Forum)
- Taybeh has an
all christian population of approximately 1400. It is
considered the only 100% christian village in Palestine.
The people of Taybeh belong to three christian denominations:
the Latin (Roman Catholic) church, the Greek Orthodox church as
well as the Melkite (Greek Catholic) church.
- Taybeh is also
home to the ruins of a Byzantine era church known
as "El Khader" (Saint George) situated to the east of
the town. One can admire its remains behind
the Melkite (Greek Catholic) church. Noticeable are
its three vault construction with its two chapels, the
entrance portico and stairway, as well as its well-preserved
and beautiful cruciform baptistery. The church
was rebuilt by the crusaders during the twelveth (12th)
- Recently, a
site containing mosaics dating back to the fourth (4th) century was
discovered next to the Greek Orthodox church. A small
chapel was built to preserve the site.
