Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.8 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Isaiah, lv:5.)--'Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not: and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee, because of the lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.' Near the east gate of Damascus there stands the traditional house of Ananias. Ananias was the disciple of Christ in Damascus who was directed to inquire for Saul in the house of Judas at the time of the apostle's conversion. This is said to stand upon the site of the house in which Ananias lived. It is fitted up now for a kind of church. We use this picture to illustrate the fifty-fifth chapter of Isaiah, because St. Paul was the great apostle to the Gentiles, through whose ministry outlying and foreign nations were to be brought to the Holy One of Israel." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi."
