Cloister at Pater Noster Church and Convent, Jerusalem, Israel, 2007 (photo)
2007 AD (C21st AD)

Today, a convent belonging to the Carmelite Cloistered Sisters is located at the site of the ruins of the Byzantine Eleona Basilica. The original church was built over a cave in which Jesus was said to have taught the disciples the 'Our Father' prayer. Luke 11: 2: 'And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name'. The first church was built in the 4th Century by Constantine's mother, Queen Helena and was later destroyed during the Persian invasion of 614. The crusaders rebuilt parts of it in 1099 and renamed it Paternoster. In 1152 a small new church was rebuilt by the Danish brothers from Jutland. The current building was built in the 19th century by Bossi Aurelia, Princess de la Tour d'Auvergne. The architect Viollet-le-Duc based his design of the church on the model of the Campo Santo cemetery at Pisa. The walls of the cloister and church are covered with the prayer in many major languages.
