Catholicon, Church of the Holy Sepulchre

Here is where the large masses are held, and where the patriarchs of Jerusalem are chosen. It is considered the center of the universe and the large chalice shaped stone on its floor is the Omphalos, the naval of the world. Looking above us, we can see the smaller dome of the church, its mosaic depicts Jesus in the center and Matthew, Marc, Luke and John at his 4 corners.

Perception of Christ Ascending to Heaven, Holy Sepulchre church

The Rotunda, known as Anastasis (Greek for “resurrection”), respects the design of the original imposing Roman-Byzantine structure, in which pillars, groups of columns and large windows alternated in a regular order. Unfortunately, as a result of the various restorations over the centuries, the windows have lost their direct sunlight and the circular ambulatory has been divided into two levels by a mezzanine. During the last restoration the twelve columns of the lower level were restored to their original form. The two columns near the Altar of Mary Magdalene were, in all likelihood, two parts of a single column belonging either to the original Constantinian complex or to Hadrian’s temple.
