In the Byzantine era, around the 6th or 7th century CE, a church was built here, on the western side of the remains. In the 19th century, it was described as having three casemated arrow-slits on the east side. Outlines of a further two churches were uncovered to the immediate south. Al-Muqaddasi describes it 985 as "a village in the further limits of the Hebron territory, in Jund Filastin; this is the Carmel mentioned in Joshua xv.55."It was mentioned in Crusader sources in 1172/3, as the place King Amalric of Jerusalem assembled his army.
In 1838 Edward Robinson noted here the remains of an ancient church. In 1863, Victor Guérin visited, noted the remains of an ancient church. In October 1874, the Palestine Exploration Fund's Survey of Western Palestine found here extensive ruins, a reservoir filled with water. Remains of a castle of Crusader origin, a church were found; the SWP traced an ancient road from Jerusalem to Al-Karmil. The Jordanian census of 1961 found 146 inhabitants in al-Karmil. In 1967, in a census conducted by Israel after it occupied the West Bank in the Six-day War, the village was reported to have 76 residents in 17 households; the site contains an ancient reservoir, Birket Al-Karmel, transformed into a major recreation area, with a swimming pool. Gideon Levy writes: The terraces, decorative landscaping, Hebron stones, washrooms and a spring that gushes from the rock next to the pool – all make this one of the most spectacular outdoor sites in the West Bank. Twice, in 2015, settler tourists under IDF guard, made incursions into the park, after the army forced the local children out of the pool and allotted them to a corner while the settlers enjoyed the pool and the site.

Carmel Valley is an affluent suburban planned community in the north-western corner of San Diego, United States. The community is composed of commercial offices, residential units and retail stores and restaurants; this is not to be confused with Carmel Valley Village, an unincorporated community in Monterey County, California. Carmel Valley is one of the newer neighborhoods of the City of California; the community was formed by the City of San Diego on February 1, 1975. The construction began in 1983; the name Carmel Valley comes from the Carmelite Sisters of Mercy, who established a dairy farm and monastery in the area c. 1905. Although the area was known locally as Carmel Valley, in 1974 the area was given the institutional name North City West in the master plan; the name Carmel Valley was readopted in the early 1990s. Carmel Valley is bordered to the north by the North City Future Urbanizing Area and Pacific Highlands Ranch. Nearby is the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, where one of two stands of the endangered Torrey Pine is found to occur.
The area is located in the hills.

The Carmel River is a 36 mi river on the Central Coast of California in Monterey County that originates in the Ventana Wilderness Area of the Santa Lucia Mountains. The river flows northwest through the Carmel Valley with its mouth at the Pacific Ocean south of Carmel-by-the-Sea, at Carmel Bay, it is considered the northern boundary of Big Sur. The Carmel River drains a watershed of about 255 square miles; the mouth of the Carmel River was first seen by Spanish explorer Sebastián Vizcaíno shortly before he landed in Monterey Bay in December 1602. He wrote about visiting the river on January 3, 1603, but exaggerated its proportions, confusing explorers; that winter the local springs near Monterey froze, the explorers had to cross the peninsula to find freshwater. Fathers Junípero Serra and Juan Crespí moved Mission San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo from Monterey to its present site by the Carmel River in 1771, they directed Indian laborers to dig ditches from the Carmel River to water their crops.
The river has supplied ranchers and residents since. After railroad baron Charles Crocker built the Hotel Del Monte, he commissioned construction of the so-called Chinese Dam in 1883 on the upper river near present-day Cachagua, it supplied 400 acre-feet of water annually to the hotel. In his 1945 novel Cannery Row John Steinbeck wrote "The Carmel is a lovely little river, it isn't long but in its course it has everything a river should have." Vizcaino named it Rio del Carmelo because his voyage was accompanied by three Carmelite friars. The river flows through various habitats beyond its bankside riparian zone: starting in mixed evergreen forests down through montane chaparral and woodlands to remnant coastal sage and chaparral and coastal prairie, concluding through minor coastal sand dunes at its Pacific mouth. Stream restoration and conservation projects are proceeding to return/enhance migrating fish in the Salmonidae family, such as the steelhead trout, other aquatic and terrestrial flora and fauna to the Carmel River ecosystem.
The Carmel River had three dams, with their reservoirs used for drinking water and having severe sediment buildup. The San Clemente Dam, built in 1921, was located 18.5 miles upstream from the ocean, once provided drinking water throughout the Monterey Peninsula. It was the second of three dams built on the Carmel River, preceded by the Old Carmel River Dam built in the 1880s and the Los Padres Dam in 1949; the San Clemente Dam had an original capacity of 1,450 acre⋅ft, but as of 2002, the capacity had fallen to less than 150 acre feet because it was 90 percent silted up. State regulators declared in 1991 that it was in danger of collapsing in an earthquake and spilling the 40 million US gallons of water trapped behind its crumbling walls. In January 2010 an agreement was reached with the California American Water Company to dig a new half-mile channel to bypass and strand the sediment behind the dam at a cost of $84 million, beginning in 2013; the Carmel River Reroute and San Clemente Dam Removal Project was completed at the end of 2015, opening up 6.5 miles of historic steelhead rainbow trout habitat on the river mainstem, plus access to three named tributary creeks: San Clemente Creek, Pine Creek and Cachagua Creek.
The Los Padres Dam, built in 1949, is located 25 miles upstream from the ocean. Its original capacity was 3,030 acre feet; the oldest dam on the river, used as a turnout for a water pipeline, was located 2,000 feet downstream of San Clemente Dam. It was removed as part of the San Clemente Dam Removal Project mentioned above; this first dam and associated pipeline was constructed ca. 1880 by Charles Crocker and the Pacific Improvement Company with a labor force that included 700 Chinese workers. This small dam, referred to as the "Chinese Dam" and "Old Carmel River Dam," was built using hewn and mortared granite blocks. A cast-iron pipe 25 miles long and 12 inches in diameter was used to deliver water from the dam to the first Del Monte Hotel on the Monterey Peninsula, crossing the Carmel River five times on its way. Remnants of the original iron pipe still exist along Carmel Valley Road, but no records have been found to show where the pipe crossed the river.

John Heenan was born in Ilford, the youngest of four children of Irish parents John and Anne Heenan, he auditioned for Westminster Cathedral Choir School at age 9, but Sir Richard Terry rejected him for his "metallic voice".

He condemned the periti, or theological experts, who sought to change the Church's doctrine on birth control. Moreover, despite the risks to ecumenism, Heenan supported the canonization of the forty martyrs.

"A church, half empty is half full." "At home it is not only women and children but fathers of families and young men who come to mass. If we were to offer them the kind of ceremony we saw yesterday in the Sistine Chapel we would soon be left with a congregation of women and children." Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church profile
