There is considerable complexity, variety, and confusion regarding Christian associations on this highest point in Jerusalem. Most important is the commemoration, through the cup of the Apostles, of the Last Supper and of the Pentecost, and it is for this recollection that the basilica built there was called the "Mother" of all churches and that the Zion church became the episcopal see of Jerusalem. The sanctuary included: a large congregational hall, separate chapels or places dedicated to holy events or people, the house of Caiphas transformed into a church, the "upper room" where the Last Supper took place, monastic lodgings, commons.Grabar, Oleg.
