About the Museum
The church at Massuh has two layers of floor mosaics. The lower one, from the AD 6th century, has no iconoclastic damage, while the upper layer, from the AH 1st /AD 7th century, was systematically altered by iconoclasts. Figures were carefully replaced by crosses, or floral and architectural motifs.
