Jordan valley- Church of St. Gerasimos -דיר חגלה- נסיעה לאורך בקעת הירדן

The Church of St. Gerasimos not far from the banks of the river Jordan.Surrounded by trees and chicken enclosures it is quite an extraordinary scene to see in the middle of the desert.I tried to find the best angle to capture an unblocked view so the sun was a bit front-on.I liked the effect of the overexposed dome.....somehow divine. Who was Saint Gerasimos? ------------------------- Born in the seventh century in the province of Lycia in Asia Minor, Gerasimos was tonsured a monk and lived in the valley of the Jordan. After some years, he established a monastery, not far from the Jordan River, that became a spiritual oasis in the desert. The monks of his order were highly respected for knowledge of dogmatic theology and their general wisdom of the faith. It is said of St. Gerasimos - "Often times, Gerasimos would pray at the banks of the Jordan River. One day, upon hearing the roar of a lion behind him, he turned and noticed that the lion had a huge sliver in his paw that was causing great pain. Gerasimos approached the lion and removed the sliver from the lion's swollen paw with no threat of harm being imparted by the lion. This done, Gerasimos simply turned to return to his monastery. To his surprise, the lion walked along side him back to the monastery.Gerasimos died at an old age in service to the Church. The lion so much loved Gerasimos that it is believed that he lamented his death as he was found dead at the foot of the grave of Gerasimos."
