 John the Baptist (“Prodromos”) church and monastery is a small complex in the Christian Quarter  of Jerusalem, property of the Greek-Orthodox church.

It is unclear if the church was built already built in the 5th century, but it was in use of the Crusaders in the 12th century. 

Later it became the property of the Greek-Orthodox church.

Their renovations in the building in the 19th century uncovered artefacts that were identified as relics of different saints. 

The church displays today a relic relating to John the Baptist.
