The House of Mary

Christians and also some followers of Islam regard this stone house to be the home of the Blessed Mother in Ephesus.  Christians believe that St. John took care of the Blessed Mother after the death of Jesus until her assumption.

The House of Mary



Ephesus was once a great city.  St. Paul wrote a letter to the Christians who live there.  The Third Ecumenical Council was held there where the Church affirmed the Nicene Creed and declared Mary as Theotokos.   Although the ancient city no longer exists, you can still admire its greatness as you walk through its ruins.
