|Fr. Gaudentius Orfali of Nazareth
In 1921 Fr. Gaudentius Orfali of Nazareth, conducted a short season of excavations, partly uncovering the octagonal church and exposing an Arab level of Capharnaum in the area between the synagogue and the octagonal church. To this young Franciscan we owe the restoration of the synagogue.
A long dedicatory inscription in Latin was engraved on one column of the N stylobate by the Department of Antiquities to commemorate the event. After Orfali's untimely death in 1926, no major work was done in Capharnaum for some 40 years.
