I'm going to rename this article.. any objections?[edit]

after looking in Category:Hebrew Bible mountains and seeing that all Bible mountains had no ", Israel" added to them I want to change this article's name to just "Mount Tabor".. any objections? Acidburn24m 00:27, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Earliest reference to Mt. Tabor as Mount of Transfiguration?[edit]

According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, [[1]], Origen identified Mt. Tabor as the Mount of Transfiguration in the early 3rd century. This is a full two centuries before the reference given in this article. I'm new to editing Wikipedia, but could someone give me a hand in citing that reference and fixing the article?

That 2.7 years ago, but I fixed it now. Some articles are updated slowly. Rursus dixit. (mbork3!) 17:03, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Names for the mountain in Canaanite period[edit]

Any information on the name/s used for this mountain by Ancient Canaanite and other people of the Levantine region, before one goes to the "Old Testament".Historylover4 (talk) 01:49, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Churches/monasteries on the Mount over history[edit]

I am trying to figure out more about the churches and monasteries which were built on the mount, but have not found much. I have found, though, that Empress Helena built a church there and stood there until demolished (apparently during the reign of Saladin) Also, in the time of the crusaders, there were two monasteries which were built centuries before the crusades dedicated to Moses and Elias. Also apparently destroyed during the reign of Saladin. Apparently after they were demolished, a fortress was built on the site.

I found this information in this text:

"A church, the erection of which was due to the piety of St. Helena, stood on the very spot of the transfiguration of Christ took place in presence of his disciples, and for a length of time attracted crowds of pilgrims. Two monasteries, built at the summit of Tabor, recalled for centuries the memory of Moses and Elias, whose names they bore; but, from the reign of Saladin, the standard of Mahomet had floated over this holy mountain ; the church of St. Helena and the monasteries of Moses and Elias had been demolished, and upon their ruins were raised a fortress, from which the Mussulmans constantly threatened the territories of Ptolemais."

Text from page 28 of Histoire des croisades written by Joseph François Michaud, Volume II of I.

I am hoping others with more sources can help to verify any of these writings, especially as to the names of churches/monasteries that were once on the mount and who destroyed what at what times so we can eventually provide such information to the article (mainly to add names of the places there)75.73.114.111 (talk) 20:50, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
