Cioffi, Paul L., 1928-2004
The Christian baptistery at Djemila (late 4th / early 5th C.) is a round structure designed with an outer ambulatory rimming its circumference and a circular inner ambulatory that envelops the central square, canopied font. Thirty-six arched niches line the walls of the outer, barrel-vaulted ambulatory. They are constructed of brick and mortar and were sheathed in stucco. The niches provided seats and vestry for the neophytes.ca. June 1983
