The cathedral complex at Nisibis

  • Elif Keser-Kayaalp (a1) and Nihat Erdoğan (a1)

The cathedral complex at Nisibis sits within what is currently a large excavation site. The excavations, continuing on and off over the last 12 years, have yielded exciting discoveries. This article is not a report of the excavations as such, but, in the light of them, it revisits the cathedral complex in an attempt to reconstruct the possible cathedral on the site and to establish the building phases of the only standing structure on the site, known as the ‘Church of Mor Yaqub’, which was the baptistery of the cathedral.

Nusaybin’deki katedral kompleksi bugün büyük bir arkeolojik kazı alanıdır. Son on iki yıldaki arkeolojik kazılar bazı heyecan verici sonuçlar ortaya çıkarmıştır. Bu makale kazıların bir raporu değildir, ancak onların ışığında katedral kompleksini yeniden ele alarak, katedrali yeniden kurgulamaya ve arazide ayakta duran ve bugün Mor Yakup kilisesi olarak adlandırılan vaftizhanenin çeşitli yapı evrelerini saptamaya çalışacaktır.
