Summary As published in the final reports by the College of Wooster and Sydney University, the dating and analysis of the excavated remains of the three churches and their associated finds at Pella, Jordan, display some puzzling aspects. This paper argues that, in these reports, two of the churches appear to have been dated up to a century later than they should have been, while the suggested date for the third now appears too early. This article examines the problem in the context of a new architectural and theological typology of churches in the East Mediterranean from the 4th to 6th centuries AD.
