the Church of the Holy Sepulchre: The Church of the Holy Sepulchre

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre

Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "The Church of the Holy Sepulchre was erected by Constantine about 336 A.D. It is built over the supposed Holy Sepulchre. It has no architectural beauty at present, if it ever had any, for it has been repeatedly destroyed and restored. The church is a very interesting site in Jerusalem to the Christian, because for more than sixteen hundred years it has been accepted as genuine for Mt. Calvary. It is so considered yet except by a few scholars who maintain that this church could not be the true site and point to the Calvary and the Garden Tomb outside the Damascus Gate."
