Sacred Souvenir: Church Of The Holy Sepulchre
A scale model made in Bethlehem in the late 1600s of the church in Jerusalem which is a special place of pilgrimage. Many Christians believe it to be the site of Jesus’ tomb.
This display focuses on a highly crafted scale model of the church made in Bethlehem in the late 1600s. It is made of wood and intricate mother-of-pearl inlay, and can be disassembled to reveal the different parts of the church within. Models like this were made and sold as souvenirs to visiting pilgrims and for export throughout Europe as reminders of the central event of the Christian faith – the death and resurrection of Christ.
In this unique display, discover how this exquisite model was made, the history of the iconic church, and the six ancient denominations that worship in it today.
