442 EOGEK OF WENDOVEH. [A.D. 1099. has only one suffragan see, that of Tiberias ; and the archbishop of Petras has one suffragan bishop also, namely, a Greek bishop in Mount Sinai. Besides the foregoing, the patriarch has also, immediately subject to himself, the suffragan bishops of Bethlehem, Lydda, and Hebron, where Adam and Eve, with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, were buried. The holy places in the city are, the church of our Lord's resurrection on Calvary, alias Golgotha, having black friars under a prior ; the temple of our Lord, in the care of the knights,* and another temple, in which there are clerks. In the church of Mount Sion are regular canons, having an abbat at their head ; in the church of the valley of Jehoshaphat are black monks under an abbat ; in the church de Latina are black monks, under an abbat ; all these are mitred abbats, and attend with the bishops aforesaid in the service of the patriarch. There are, moreover, other cities which have no bishops, namely Ascalon, subject to the bishop of Bethlehem ; Joppa, which is under the canons of our Lord's sepulchre ; Neapolis, which is under the clerks of the temple ; and Cayphas, subject to the archbishop of Csesarea. Nazareth is the place where Mary, our Lord's mother, was born, and the Son of the Most High was conceived in the womb of the virgin ; Bethlehem, where the Bread of Life was born ; and the Jordan is the river in which Christ was baptized. There is also another place where Christ fasted, and was tempted by the devil ; the lake of Gennesareth, where he called his disciples and did many miracles; Mount Tabor, whereon he appeared transfigured. Within the holy city is the temple, where he was presented ; Mount Sion, Avhere he supped with his disciples, where the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples, and the mother of our Lord departed from this world ; Calvary, where he suffered death upon the cross; the sepulchre, where he lay and rose again on the third day ; Mount Olivet, where he sat on an ass and was worshipped by the children, and from which he ascended into heaven; Bethany, where he raised Lazarus from the dead; Siloe, where he restored sight to him who was born blind; Gethsemani, or the valley of Jehoshaphat, where Christ was seized by the Jews, and his mother Mary was • Knights Templars.
