About Madaba

Madaba is the capital city of Jordan's Madaba Governorate, with a population of around 60,000. It is most recognised for its Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics, particularly a vast mosaic map of the Holy Land from the Byzantine period. Madaba is situated 30 kilometres (19 miles) south of Amman, Jordan's capital.
Madaba dates all the way back to the Middle Bronze Age.
Madaba was once a Moabite frontier city, as referenced in Numbers 21:30 and Joshua 13:9. As described in the Mesha Stele, Israel and Moab alternated control of the city.
From the second to the seventh century, the city was ruled by the Roman and Byzantine empires as part of the Provincia Arabia established by the Roman Emperor Trajan to replace the Nabataean kingdom of Petra.
The first indication of a Christian community in the city, complete with its own bishop, is found in the Acts of the Council of Chalcedon in 451, when Constantine, Metropolitan Archbishop of Bostra (the province capital), signed on behalf of Gaiano, "Bishop of the Medabeni."
It was a component of the southern district of Jund Filastin within the Bilad al-Sham province under the authority of the Islamic Umayyad Caliphate.

Modern settlement
In 1880, 90 Arab Christian-convert families from Al Karak, accompanied by two Italian priests from the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, resettled the city ruins. Archaeological investigation began during this time period. This greatly supplemented the meagre material that was previously accessible.
The Catholic Church's list of titular sees retains the old spelling "Medaba" to refer to the historic bishopric centred on this city, while also referring to the contemporary metropolis as "Madaba."
