(p.117) 12 An Updated Plan of the Church at Dayr Qubbat al-Hawa
Christianity and Monasticism in Aswan and Nubia

The recent excavation of the church at Dayr Qubbat al-Hawa by Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities and another visit to the site made it possible to draw an updated ground plan and to answer the question of whether the church was a large building with two naves, or two churches, one of which was more recent. The updated plan demonstrates that there was one single church, previously called the ‘northern church.’ The author's appendix aims at registering and localizing the wall paintings in the church as well as some inscriptions in order to complement and correct her previous 2008 article.
