Work Type
1 photograph
25.4 x 17.9 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
A man stands amid a group of several large rocks in a field.
The photograph is printed in a book with a typed description. The description: "(Revelation, ii:1.)--One may wonder while looking at this picture upon what grounds the scene represented is called a church. There are only scattered rocks and ruins, and nothing specially to indicate that a church was ever here. But this is pointed out as the site upon which stood the Church of St. John. Here was one of the seven churches of Asia to which St. John was instructed to write in Revelation. We know very little about the history of St. John. He was the son of Zebedee and Salome, and a brother of James. His father was a fisherman on Lake Galilee. He was one of the apostles, and after the crucifixion of our Lord, he went into Asia, where he exercised pastoral superintendence over the Asiatic churches. Polycarp, the Bishop of Smyrna, was a disciple of St. John."
The photograph was not catalogued by Lazard--it was catalogued at CAJS.
