The belief that Mary, the mother of Jesus, came to Ephesus with St John is credible. Still, the House of Virgin Mary building on the slope of mount Koressos is a small Byzantine chapel probably dating from the thirteenth century. The conviction that Mary lived and died on this site is based solely on the visions, in the 19th century, of the German nun Anna Katerina Emmerich. The Catholic Church has not made any pronouncement on the claim’s authenticity, but several popes have visited the site and given the papal apostolic blessing. Visitors witness the peaceful, spiritual quality of the place as well as the devotion of many pilgrims.
