Transcript JERUSALEM. 89 Theodericus, 1172 a.d., in his account of the Holy Places, states that Bethphage lay between Bethany and the Mount of Olives, and that there was then a " fair chapel" in which was to be seen the stone on which our Lord stood before mounting the ass—evidently the monolith which was discovered in 1877. There is thus no doubt as to the site of the mediaeval Bethphage, but it is doubtful whether the place is identical with the Bethphage of the gospel, of which no certain trace has yet been found. From the ruins of the little chapel the road descends to Bethany, now a small village of wretched hovels, surrounded by fig, olive, almond, and carob trees, which contrast pleasantly with the barren rocks of the adjoining hills. The Arabic name of this place is El Aziriyeh, from Lazarus, and the most prominent object is the Castle of Lazarus, erected during the period of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. Near the castle is the tomb; a flight of steps leads down to a small square chamber, whence other steps give access to the vault in which the body of Lazarus is said to have been laid. The vault is lined with masonry, and has nothing; in common with the rock-hewn tombs in which the Jews buried their dead. In Bethany are shown the houses of Mary and Martha and of Simon the Leper, and a short distance on the road to Jericho the place is pointed out at which Martha met Jesus. Though tradition may be at fault with regard to the tomb and 13 n* EXTERIOR OF THE GOLDEN GATE. Moslem tombs in the foreground.
