1 photograph
25.4 x 18.2 cm ( 10 x 7.125 in).
There is a narrow trail with a rock wall on the left side and, on the right side, a row of pillars interspersed with a stone wall.
The photograph is in a book with a typed description. The description: "(Acts, viii:5.)--We read in the I. Kings, xvi: 23, 24, that the hill known as Samaria was purchased by King Omri from Shemer. And in this way it doubtless came by its name. Ahab, the son of Omri, lived here with his wife Jezebel, daughter of the king of Sidon. Here Ahab erected a temple on the summit of the hill of Samaria to the Phoenician god Baal.--Kings, xvi: 31, 32. This temple was destroyed, we learn from II. Kings, x: 17, 28, by Jehu. Elisha the prophet lived here a part of his life, and many of his wonderful actions are associated with this place. The pillars we see in the picture were built, it is supposed, by Herod, for he built a temple here in honor of Augustus, the emperor of Rome. The limestone columns stand now in the midst of the wheat fields." The copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5285BAI/LVii11CAJS (Voyager # 360774).
The photograph was not catalogued by Lazard--it was catalogued at CAJS.
