Kafr Nabu is an Assyrian settlement of the ninth century BC, which was named after Nabu, the Mesopotamian god of literacy, the rational arts, scribes and wisdom. However, worshiping Ataratheh was prevalent in the region before shifting to Zeus when the Greeks arrived. In 398 AD, the temple in Kafr Nabu was converted to a church by Saint Maron. Another chapel was inaugurated in 525 AD.
