This chapter discusses the damage to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem caused by the earthquake of July 11, 1927. The Holy Sepulchre was considered the mother of all churches because it was built in the same place where Jesus Christ was crucified and rose from the dead. Within hours of the earthquake it was reported that only the Citadel of the church was damaged and most other parts of the structure remained intact. The earthquake only left bowed walls, cracked vaults and traces of powdering rock in dusty corners.
