Saint Elie Cathedral was the first Armenian Catholic church built in Beirut. Destroyed and re-built several times throughout its history, most notably in 1950 for the Saints Convention, and during the Lebanese civil war, due to it location directly along the green line.

A church building is a building or structure whose primary purpose is to facilitate the meeting of a church. As Christianity grew and became more accepted by governments, notably with the Edict of Milan, rooms and, eventually, entire buildings were set aside for the explicit purpose of Christian worship, such as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
