This Domus Ecclesia is referred to by Eteria in the late fourth century when she writes: "The house of the prince of the Apostles (i.e. Peter) was changed into a church. The walls, however, (of that house) are still standing as they were (originally)."

The Insula Sacra
at the Time of Jesus

The traditional house of Peter was close to the lake shore and was flanked to the east by the main , north-south, road (cardo maximus) of the village.

Spacious courtyards with a staircase and terra refractaria fire places were shared by several roofed rooms.

The Christian community of Capharnaum paid special attention to a square room (1).
