Saving the Holy Sepulchre

This chapter discusses the restoration of the rotunda of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The planning for the restoration started on May 28, 1969 and the principal architects were confronted with a huge restoration challenge. This was the problem of recreating a setting that would convey the mystery of the Resurrection while at the same time remaining true to the original plan and within the iron grip of the Status Quo.
